Bolton College - New Bury Community Learning Centre

Bolton College's New Bury centre serves the Farnworth locality. Located at the junction of Buckley Lane and St James Street in Farnworth, the centre provides first step learning courses that also act as a springboard for learners moving on to further education and training.

Courses are available to all learners living in Farnworth, Kearsley and Little Lever and wider Bolton.

Our friendly, experienced and approachable team is committed to breaking down isolation and helping to build thriving communities where learning enables people to acquire and develop life-changing skills.

Many people start off by trying one of our short courses and are pleasantly surprised when this leads to rewarding opportunities to learn and develop.

It can be daunting taking a step back into education so, at Bolton College, our friendly team will ensure you have a positive learning journey. Whether you’re a new learner or a returning learner, our accessible programmes will boost your confidence, help you to develop skills for employment, and support you to get a qualification.

Delivered across three centres in the Bolton area (New Bury, Brownlow Fold and Deane & Derby) our Adult and Community Learning programmes fall into five categories:

Skills for Work & Further Learning

Programmes to help you gain employment, get ahead at work or move on to further learning. You’ll be spoilt for choice, with everything from Sign Language to Office Skills.

Positive Steps into Learning

Programmes to improve your wellbeing, from Cookery to Confidence Building.

Computer & Digital Skills

Everyday life is increasingly reliant on computers and digital media. If you feel like you’re behind the times, our Computer, IT and Digital programmes will bring you into the modern age, improving your IT skills at home and at work.

English & Maths

English and maths skills are essential for succeeding in employment or further study. Our FREE taster programmes will help you to brush up on those vital skills.

Family Learning

Our FREE programmes ensure that you’ll always have the answer when your little one puts you on the spot. Even better, you’ll get to work alongside your child at school, so you’ll see what they really get up to in the classroom.

Best of all, you can enrol at any of our Community Learning Centres and Bolton College's main campus.
