Adult Apprenticeships

Flexible training

We work closely with employers and advertise their vacancies on the National Apprenticeship Vacancy Service: www.apprenticeships.org.uk

Who can take an Apprenticeship? Apprenticeships are not only available to school leavers, they are open to anyone over the age of 16, as long as they are employed. This may mean you need to find an employer to support your Apprenticeship or you could study an Apprenticeship qualification whilst in your current job. For those already in employment, an Apprenticeship qualification can add to your industry knowledge, boost your CV or show your employer your commitment and future potential by adding to your skill set.

Why should I take an Apprenticeship? Whilst taking an Apprenticeship, you will be working for a real company in a real job. You will gain the skills, knowledge and experience of your chosen industry. You will also work towards either an NVQ or another nationally recognised qualification.

You can ‘earn while you learn’ As an Apprentice you will earn a wage which is paid by your employer which must meet the minimum salary of £2.68 per hour. The average salary for Apprentices is around £170 a week.

“ I looked around for courses but many of them seemed to be specific to particular software tools which would require too much of my time to be able to continue working, or would not cover the subject in enough depth to be sufficiently useful. City College had just the thing I needed in their Graphic Design course. There was quite a lot to cover but I found it very enjoyable and I know it will definitely help my work on other projects in the future. Alan Fransham Graphic Design

HISTORY

Unleashing the Genie: Power and Growth in Late Victorian England 1880-1900

E

This course looks at technology, electricity, science, medicine, the telephone and the relentless advance of the human potential continued apace, hurtling towards the end of the Victorian era and into a new, Edwardian age offering what seemed like, limitless powers to change society in every direction. Improvements were made in housing, sanitation and hygiene, and boys and girls enjoyed the benefits of education, although for the working-class being in a paid job from as early an age as possible was still more important for the family and its precarious finances than schooling. Railways created new economic and social relationships and opened up the country. Those in cities and towns could visit the countryside and seaside, and rural folk could get a taste of London or other city life. London was fast growing and not only a place of excitement and entertainment but also of vice and squalor.

We also look at the role of women and the agitations of what was to become the Suffragette Movement, as well as the fortunes that could be made by working-class actresses and music hall stars marrying wealthy men. Philanthropic women were socially aware and active, and one of the most interesting stories is that of wealthy Baroness Angela Burdett-Coutts, known as “Queen of the poor” who, as well as supporting or being instigator of many good causes, founded Holly Village, the first example of a gated housing development. Aged sixty-seven, she married William, her secretary who was half her age and took her surname. Illustrated with slides, books, extracts from period texts, prints, paintings and video clips. Classes are friendly and the experienced adult education tutor supportive.

Winter Customs, Christmas Traditions a fascinating history

The Time Machine

Progress and Change in Late Victorian England 1880-1900

E

This was a time of great change and progress at the end of the century, leading into new ways of thought and progressive ideas, as well as action, energy, optimism and innovation. There was also stagnation, pessimism, overcrowding and illness. The wealthy were very rich and the poor lived in abject poverty.

Study the origins, meanings and significance of many winter and Christmas traditions from pagan to mid-twentieth century, including the Yule log and the Christmas tree’s entry into England. Looking at the early origins, winter solstice and pagan rituals of Roman times, as well as the symbolism of evergreens and cereals, such as holly, ivy, mistletoe, rosemary, wheat, fir and bay, and the significance of fire and flame. We also discover who Saint Nicholas was and the origins of Father Christmas and Santa Claus, as well as finding out how traditions came about, such as why sixpence is put into the pudding, the reason candles are lit, why children put up a stocking, and why plum pudding is eaten at Christmas.

The Victorian age was a time of contrasts and contradictions. On the one hand, piety, prudery, stiffness and hypocrisy; on the other, free thinking and high living immorality. Inbetween was the ordinary, hard-working, fun-loving Victorian, who wanted to enjoy all that was on offer in this fast-moving world, which included the cinema and the motor-car. Lots of books, journals and newspapers enlightened a new readership, especially those who benefited from a higher standard of schooling and being able to read. The Daily Mail was first published in 1896 and changed the pattern of journalism. Now, even the working-class home could take a daily newspaper and keep up-to-date with the news, as well as being entertained. Three years after it was first published, the Daily Mail had a circulation of more than half a million.

Follow the entertainments and customs of Tudor and Elizabethan Christmases when festivities were on a grand scale, with much feasting and public display; Georgian Christmases which were much quieter and more sedate, although there were also balls and parties; and how the Victorians and Dickens ‘invented’ the commercial Christmas - we look at it in all its glory and discuss the confections, cards, decorations, games and crackers. Finally, a look at Twentieth century Christmas celebrations and how the Festive season was spent from the early century through to the Fifties, including austerities of wartime which brought about much ingenuity.

Study work, domestic life, architecture, technology, leisure and the arts, literature and painting, as well as advances in medicine and the legacy of men such as Joseph Lister and his work on anaesthesia which changed surgical treatments, allowing more people to survive after an operation. Find out how hospitals functioned and the long working day of the nurse and doctor. People could still go to prison for minor offences and life inside was bleak, especially difficult for women.

Illustrated with slides, books and video. A feast of festive fun to brighten your day with a friendly group and supportive and experienced adult education tutor.

Illustrated with slides, books, extracts from period texts, prints, paintings and video clips. Classes are friendly and supported by experienced adult education tutor.

I work full time and the opportunity to attend a course which is geared and pitched at my interests was a dream come true... Some of the literature the tutor has introduced to me is completely new and I would not have come across it had I not attended the course.

Novels and Films of the Inter-war Years 1920-1939

Melanie Rowland

E

Study the social and cultural history within the pages of novels and extracts of films of the post-WWI period 1920s and 1930s, by viewing many books and film clips.

The Golden Afternoon

Introducing the Edwardians 1900-1914

E

The short ‘Golden Age’ before ‘the black pit of war’ (as J.B. Priestley described it) that was to change the idyll of elegant living for the wealthy socialising on a grand scale, but also a tarnished age for the poor living in slums. During this course we compare domestic, social and cultural life, including how paintings and literature depicted society. The summer season’s giddy whirl for women of fashion was in sharp contrast to poor wives and mothers trying hard to keep a decent home and the family fed. The middle-class home was paramount and the family was its focus. A haven to escape the stress of long working hours in factory and office. New technologies and ideas of hygiene changed how houses were run, decorated and furnished. Leisure time was enjoyed by all classes in many different ways, from outdoor travelling fairs and games to indoor music halls and the public house or gin palace. Selfridge’s was founded in 1909 and invented the idea of shopping as a leisure time activity.

There was a great wealth of literature, written in a new and modern style, and many (now mostly unknown) fascinating films of this period which provide us with unwitting testimony of how people lived, worked, spent their leisure, how they formed relationships and dealt with various situations, what sort of houses they lived in and the effect of improvements and modernisation, as well as the differences between the classes and of the great poverty for the working class. We can also see how fashion and etiquette changed and how the effects of World War One and other influences had changed people’s perceptions and inspired them with aspirations for a better life. Book extracts and film clips will be followed by analysis and discussion, and by the end of the session you will be reading and viewing in a totally different way. A feast of words and images to enjoy and enliven your day with a friendly group and supportive and experienced adult education tutor. Entry requirements: N/A Course Code: COM174 (Saturday Workshop: 18/04/2015) Venue: Central Campus Days/Hours: Sat 11am-4pm Duration: 1 day Fee: £35

If one was wealthy days were spent in leisure pursuits and changing clothes-up to five times daily. ‘Below stairs’ is even more fascinating than ‘above’. Houses were run with military precision and an army of servants, or perhaps just one cook-housekeeper for the lower middle-class.
