If you secure a posting to Wales, you might find it’s the perfect time to learn a new skill or take a course.
The NPTC Group offers opportunities across the country, with colleges in Brecon, Afan, Newtown and Neath, as well as four other campuses throughout Wales.
Joanne Howells is the Lifelong Learning Development Advisor at Brecon Beacons College. “We have a very good working relationship with the Infantry Battle School (IBS), partnering with them on projects and highlighting our study opportunities to families,” she says. “We also do non-academic projects in the community and recently started working with families at the IBS to put together a cookbook to raise funds for the local food bank. This is really bringing the community together and introducing people to different cuisines from around the world.”
Karen Harris-Vernon is one of the group’s Business Engagement Advisors, she explains: “There is a wide range of courses available for people to choose from. We offer full- and part-time courses, as well as distance learning options, in a huge number of subject areas, including digital marketing, photography, counselling and customer service. Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for fully-funded study, which makes learning much more accessible.”
