Our Return to Learning course is specifically designed to help you re-enter education if you have been out of the education system for a long time, if you are a carer, or if you wish to move to the next level from a Level 4 course. This Community Care course will help you develop new skills and knowledge in a supportive atmosphere where small class sizes and individual attention will help you achieve your goals.
This part-time course will prepare you to enter the work force in a variety of community care settings or to progress your education at the next level.

“The Return to Education course helped me immensely with my assignments and academic skills. I really enjoyed the many modules we did ranging from Human Growth & Development to practical subjects such as Word Processing which was such a help for writing assignments. I met so many great people with whom I am still friends. Some have continued their studies and others have gone into employment. RTL has been a very memorable year and one I won’t forget.”
