NTC Learning Centres

As part of its commitment to support quality flexible learning, NTC delivers selected undergraduate course units off-site at locations in Glasgow, Cornwall, and Garstang.

These classes are delivered by the NTC teaching team, usually in a combination of weekend and evening classes, to allow access to study for those who have other commitments during the day.

This allows you to study ‘on your doorstep’ in small, engaged classes: lots of opportunities to get your teeth into some serious material. Whether you are exploring a call to ministry, wanting to be a better-informed Christian in your workplace, or an active minister looking for some robust continuing education, these classes make an attractive option.

Students can take these classes for audit or for credit. Classes taken for credit can also contribute to the range of awards you can receive through the College. See the individual Centre details below for more details and for information about courses, patterns of study, and registration.


Garstang Learning Centre

The Garstang Learning Centre is a partnership with the Free Methodist Church

Garstang Free Methodist Church,
Windsor Rd, Garstang
PR3 1ED

Pattern of study

Five Monday evenings in Garstang and two Saturdays (at NTC, Manchester) spread across three months.

Each class begins with a taster session on a Monday evening which you can come to free of charge and without committing to the rest of the course. The taster session provides an introduction to the unit but is also aimed to be a stand-alone event for those who are interested in the topic being presented. Why not come as a group and use this as a part of your weekly small group meetings or home groups?

Up to 100 credits of classes taken for credit through the Garstang Learning Centre can contribute to one of the validated awards you can receive through the College (with the remaining units completed by on-site study in Manchester). Alternatively, you can complete 100 credits through the Learning Centre and gain the internally-validated Christian Service Certificate (100 credits). Please contact the College if you decide that you would like to work towards one of these qualifications.
