Along with engineering, cookery, counselling, languages, beauty and sports courses - you really will be spoilt for choice.

Fusing a new future: from the classroom to the marketplace

Retired primary school teacher Sian Charlton was enrolled onto a ten week glass techniques course by her daughters as a Mothers' Day gift.

"I have always enjoyed crafting, but glass was a medium that I had never worked with before. I was slightly nervous going into the first class, but was given a great welcome by everyone," she explained.

"The teacher, Ali, is really inspiring and teaches us new techniques every week. And I have fallen in love with glass so much that I now have a microwave kiln at home.

"I have sold my work at various craft markets, and a highlight this year was having my necklaces exhibited at Mission Gallery. If you are considering a part-time course at the College – I’d say to go for it. You never know where it could take you."
