Ruskin College launches its Further Education Prospectus

By John Charlton

Oxford based Ruskin College provides learning opportunities for the local community and for students from across the UK and beyond. The prospectus offers a wide range of courses supporting access to employment and higher education, personal development, vocational skills at accredited levels and courses for interest.

New this year is a range of certificates and awards in bookkeeping, customer service, business administration, teaching support, youth work, counselling, emergency first at aid work, and health and safety in the workplace. These courses will help either progress students in their current work place to develop their skills or to enable them to start a new career.

The College also offers English and Maths qualifications at a range of different levels: from ESOL to GSCE. The Access to Higher Education Diplomas in Health Professions and Social Sciences are always extremely popular due to the blend of preparing for further academic study and vocational relevance.

A residential programme is offered that will give insight into some of the issues faced by today’s society. The programme covers topics such as drug or alcohol awareness, coping with stress, understanding mental health, an introduction to counselling, and getting savvy with social media.
