Funded Adult Skills

COVID-19 Guidance for Short Course Bookings

Due to the current government guidance on social distancing and the closure of all College campuses, apart from our Online Training Courses, all Adult Skills Croxteth until April 30th 2020 have been postponed. If you have any queries please contact us via adultskills@myerscough.ac.uk.

As I am sure you appreciate this is a very busy time for us and so it may take us a little longer than usual to respond to queries. Thank you for your understanding.
