Adult education in Gosport is changing for the better
27 Apr 2018
St Vincent Sixth Form College is planning to build on current success and further develop its adult and community learning provision.
The College has provided high quality learning opportunities for adults across the region for many years but now plans to consolidate all academic and recreational course activity into easily accessible accommodation at the St Vincent site. This will see the College’s historic clock tower building hosting what is set to be an even more successful centre of excellence for adult, higher education and community learning courses.
Andy Grant, Deputy Principal said:
‘Supporting adults to have access to outstanding education opportunities is at the heart of the College ethos and we are thrilled to be planning an exciting new programme for our community, incorporating both established and additional courses in dedicated facilities.’
The change will see some of the College’s community learning provision move from its current accommodation at the Nimrod Centre in Rowner at the end of August, with the new timetable of courses starting at the St Vincent campus in September.
Deputy Principal added:
‘Bringing all adult and community courses together in a dedicated college space will allow us to plan and deliver a refreshed programme of community learning opportunities for adults. This will also give them access to the outstanding advice, guidance and support services available to all St Vincent learners’
The College’s School of Adult and Higher Education already offers highly successful Access to Higher Education Diplomas (an additional Business Studies Access Diploma is due to start in September) and delivers Foundation Degrees on behalf of the University of Portsmouth.
We believes that the new centre will offer adults across the region even greater opportunities to learn and progress further.
