Part-time courses for adults

Are you looking for a new job? Looking to upskill? Or looking to get back in to work? Take your next career step and sign up to learn new skills that will help you #BoostYourCareer.


We have a huge variety of adult courses that can be studied online and at college. Some can provide you with career-related skills that will help you to get a better job or get back into employment. Some will give you the knowledge and confidence to set up your own business and some will simply enable you to learn more about your hobbies and topics of interest.

You can study at one of our local colleges in Rodbaston, Cannock, Tamworth or Lichfield across a wide range of career areas.

With a part-time course you can fit in your studying around other commitments. Our courses have been designed to meet skills shortages in Staffordshire and the West Midlands, so not only will you be supported to achieve the right qualifications, but we’ll help you to develop skills that employers in your local area really want – helping you to gain employment or to boost your career.

Our career-boosting courses for adults are taught by industry experts, and whilst you might think that college is for young people, you’ll be surprised how many adult learners are returning to studying and your life experience will help in your learning too.

Did you know, your chosen course may also be FREE! Adult learners (19+) can also apply to the college for support with funding childcare, travel or equipment costs through its bursary scheme. To find out more information please email

Why SSC?

At South Staffordshire College our students come first, and everything we do is aimed at helping you to realise your full potential. We are about careers not courses and our expert staff will make sure you have the skills and knowledge needed to give you that competitive edge for when you start your career within your chosen industry.

As a school leaver, you will be treated as an adult, within a friendly and supportive environment. You’ll enjoy more freedom and independence, and you’ll make many new friends, all with the same passion and journey ahead as you. As an adult, we understand you may feel uneasy about returning to education, but there is no need to be. We have smaller class sizes and supportive tutors to make you feel very welcome.

#CreateYourCareer with us.
