Welcome to Higher and Adult Education at Ashton Sixth Form College

Entering Higher & Adult Education is about more than gaining a qualification – it’s an opportunity to boost your life skills, gain a qualification, and enrich your experience. Whether you want to change your career or expand your prospects further, we offer a range of full-time and part-time programmes that can be carried out both flexibly and affordably. 

Due to our smaller class sizes, we are able to get to know our students personally and can support their learning and growth on a one-to-one basis. The nature of how our courses are delivered also means that students can study alongside other commitments, whether that be around employment, a family, or other hobbies. We offer a mix of daytime and evening classes. 

Our small, dedicated, and talented team of teaching staff bring a breadth of experience in their relevant professions and a passion for their subject areas to help you succeed. 

Our university courses are delivered in conjunction with two leading universities – meaning you are able to gain the same, recognised qualification without the higher tuition fees or living costs.  

At Ashton, we are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, supportive, and ambitious learning environment that will provide you with opportunities and the confidence to be successful in your future and current careers. 

Our next open evening for all Higher and Adult Education courses will be on Wednesday 6th September from 5pm - 8pm. You can arrive within this timeframe. 

If you want to enquire about any course, contact us on 0161 6668215 or email AdultEd@Asfc.ac.uk
