Whether you have aspirations of becoming an accountant, engineer, counsellor or teacher, or you are an employer looking to develop your staff, Gloucestershire College has launched a new Part-time and Professional Course Guide filled with courses that can qualify you for all these careers and more.

Available across all campuses in Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Forest of Dean, and covering levels 1 to 7 (equivalent to a Master’s degree), the new range of part-time and professional courses have starting dates between September and January, and aim to fit in with the busy lives of those already in industry.

The broad range of courses include AAT and ACCA Accounting; A+ (Computing Hardware and Support); Professional Cookery; Counselling Skills; ACS Gas Safety; CAD, CAM and CNC Engineering; Hairdressing; Beauty Therapy; Personal Training; Education and Training; and Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools.

All courses will develop students’ skills in their chosen field, provide them with an industry-recognised qualification and ultimately enhance their career prospects. Some of these are essential for progression within the workplace, while others can open doors to alternative career pathways.

Vice Principal Peter White said: “Gloucestershire College is committed to continuing professional development and the new range of part-time courses are not only highly focused and relevant but many are taught by practitioners active in their fields.

“For employers, the courses offer the opportunity to develop staff to meet their full potential and the ever-changing economic and industry demands.”

The new course guide also features details of skills development and lifestyle courses available, as well as information about apprenticeships, higher apprenticeships and higher education options at Gloucestershire College.
