Autumn Part Time and Evening Courses
2020 has provided plenty of challenges for educators and students alike. This September will see a return of the Autumn schedule of evening and part time courses around the country; but with a difference. Many colleges will see reduced class sizes for those courses going ahead. Other courses will be offered as live online classes, whilst others will take a blended learning approach, offering reduced class time with the remainder offered through distance learning, either pre-prepared or live via software such as Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams or similar. Whatever the method, there are still a wide range of options out there for those seeking part time learning options this Autumn. Some of these are outlined below..
