Welcome to Craven College Adult Part-time course listings 2020-21.

We are aware there are a number of unknowns and as you can imagine planning our part-time provision has been slightly different from previous years. Due to this uncertainty, all our courses are here on our website, where you can find full details, times, costs etc. Keep checking back throughout the year as we will add new courses. 

Our part-time team are always on the lookout for new courses to whet your appetite as well as keeping all the courses you have come to know and love. You can choose options from plastering to fine metalwork, mental health to drawing. 
This year our new courses include Candle Making, Criminology, How to Grow Microgreens and for the more adventurous -  Bushcraft and Survival Skills. If you are looking for a new career or to enhance your skills, qualifications are available in Cabin Crew, Horticulture, Barbering, Counselling, Fitness Instructing and more …

Tutors have been busy planning innovative ways to deliver their courses online or a mixture of online and in the classroom to ensure those that can't access the College can continue to learn and meet new people. 

All courses have been planned in accordance with the current Government guidance on Covid-19, therefore, some class sizes may be reduced.  Students may be asked to bring their own equipment for classes to limit the sharing of equipment. Due to Government Guidance and social distancing measures some courses will be delivered using a blended learning approach and utilising technology for theoretical elements of courses.  For some accredited courses, the curriculum will be delivered flexibly with significantly smaller group sizes attending alternate weeks for practical classes to ensure students receive enough practical learning alongside more concentrated tutor input. 

Don't forget - if you have any ideas for courses you would like to see - we'd love to hear from you. 

Enrolment is currently available online (for most courses) or by Freepost. If you have any questions relating to specific courses or would like to enrol by post please contact: or call 01756 693 309 before enrolling. 

Part-time courses are term time only. See our term dates for further information.
