Educating for success 
in a changing world 

Open Learning Centre

Background

The Open Learning Centre was started in September 1994, with the objective of providing “quality flexible education to the Unemployed, Lone-parents, House-Parents, and those with Disabilities. In fact anyone who needs flexibility in their education”.

The centre provides access to education in a flexible and open way. The policy of the centre is to provide access to learning facilities in a manner appropriate to the needs of the individual. Learning resources are provided at times and at a level, which suits the students, rather than depending on prescribed timetables and syllabi to which the students must adapt.

  • Access to study when they want
