Looking to boost your skills and learn something new?


We’re offering completely free courses for adults across the North East. All courses are virtual - so you can learn safely and flexibly around the demands of your work or home life. 

Our courses are ideal for you if you’re looking to expand your knowledge and enhance your CV to help you secure employment or a promotion. They’re also ideal for anyone wanting to boost their skills for their own personal development. 

There are more than 40 courses available to you (and you can choose to study more than one.)

These virtual courses all include guidance and direct support from Gateshead College’s expert teachers, so you’ll be able to get help and advice when you need it.
