The Adult Education Centre provides a range of affordable short courses and training opportunities, enabling members of the public to explore a new hobby, improve basic skills for work or get a taster of a possible new career.
Subjects include languages, art, ICT, ESOL, electrical installations, furniture making, musical instrument crafts and more.
The Centre is open daily and provides a relaxed and friendly environment to study and learn, where people can also book to use laptops to complete the free online courses provided by the College.
Newark and Sherwood District Council Leader, David Lloyd said: “This further investment to College is brilliant news for our community. I’ve been to look at the new Centre and it’s fantastic.
“It offers an informal setting for all manner of different learning, not just for employment, but a whole wealth of things that will bring people together to generate new skills going forward.
“I’m delighted we have this focus now, on different people throughout our community, to improve people’s education, lift their aspirations, help them with their skills, but crucially bring them together in a warm, welcoming environment.”
Advanced Curriculum Coach at Newark College, Penny Taylor said: “We’re so pleased to be empowering adults in Newark to come back to education, so they can retrain, reskill or have fun learning a new hobby with like-minded people.”
