Learning Development

Helping you plan for an independent life, with skills for work or further study

Newcastle College Learning Development offers a range of bespoke courses for young people (16-25) with moderate learning difficulties.

Our free courses teach the skills required in the ‘world of work’ enabling you to progress to employment or onto further study. Learn:

  • essential, literacy and numeracy, vocational and independence skills relevant to your long term goals and useful in everyday life

  • in a structured and supported environment

  • through practical activities, using real and relevant situations.


Our courses encourage you to make your own choices about the way you learn, but we are there to make sure that you are always working towards realistic targets and long-term goals.
