Adult Learning

MCA Community College was launched in 2011 to provide adult learning and enrichment opportunities to those residing in the area local to MCA.  To date over 250 learners each year have taken part in adult learning activities with the Community College, with over half of these learners gaining one or more qualifications as a result of their course.  On average, over 55% of adult learners taking part in courses at MCA progress to undertake further training, or enter volunteering and employment.

The Community College offers a diverse range of qualification and non-qualification courses for adults in a number of subject areas, so chat to us and find out what we can do for you.  Please see the information below for up to date course information.

To register for a course, or for further information, please contact the Community College on 0161 202 0161 or or call in to MCA Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.

For 2018 MCA will once again be offering adult and community learning opportunities for those residing in the M8, M9 and M40 postcode areas. We have some fantastic new courses available this year including 'Developing software skills' and 'ESOL', alongside old favourites such as 'Cookery', 'IT' and 'Art'. 


More than 250 adults took part in courses here at MCA last year, with over 75% of them going on to positive outcomes such as employment, volunteering or further training after completing their course.


Please see the brochure below for details of the courses on offer and details of how to join us, and get in touch if you would like any further information.
