Community learning has never been so varied – Evening and Community Courses

Attending college is not all about full time education, as many Borderers are already aware. Many courses are offered on a day and evening basis, with some courses running through the day and some as traditional evening classes. With over eighty classes on offer, starting in August and September, Borders College has just published its latest wide ranging offering of classes.

Covering a range of subject areas, from Highers to family classes, there is sure to be a course for everyone, be it leisure or a certificate class.

Please visit the website and checkout the fantastic range of courses on offer.
