About our courses

Our courses are always designed by people with lived experience and those who are a professional in that area. The courses are designed to provide the tools that students may need to learn new skills and develop knowledge and confidence in that area.
The college is for EVERYONE and we want family, friends, carers, NHS staff and the community within City and Hackney to get involved to support each other on their journey

Our Spring term is now open for enrolments, it will begin on 20th February and will run until June. We have a half term from 10th Arpil for one week where there will be no courses and there will also be no courses during the bank holidays.
