Part-time Courses

 College buildings have now re-opened to students.  You can still register your interest for a classroom based part-time course by emailing with your full name, the course title and a contact telephone number. Please put ‘Interested in a Part-time course’ in the email subject bar, if possible. You can still enrol online for a Distance Learning course. Our Enrolments Team will contact you after enrolling and arrange for you to send your evidence for funding.

We can help you improve your job prospects, change your career or develop a hobby or interest. You are in safe hands as we have an Adult Pass rate of 94% versus the National College Average of 93%.

We understand you have busy lives and offer some flexibility as some courses run during the day and others on an evening, either at College or in the community.

We provide high quality, inspirational education and training that meets the ambitions of individuals, businesses and communities. Every new skill learnt is an advantage at work and at home. We all love learning at Shipley College and we want our passion for gaining new skills to spread throughout the entire community. We know many people leave learning behind after school and find the thought of going back intimidating.
