Developing your skills

At NEC, we are passionate about lifelong learning. We believe that anyone, whatever their experience of formal education, should have the opportunity to study and acquire new skills. Our Developing your skills courses are designed to help you build firm foundations from which to continue your studies, whether for work or to make more of your leisure time.

We have launched this new series with Latin, a course for absolute beginners. It’s a great introduction to this ancient and important language.
