Auburn College


Auburn College is a social enterprise/co-operative centred upon the principle of serving the community by providing quality, affordable education. Our organizational structure provides cost efficiencies that allow us to direct more resources to teaching staff and students where it belongs.  For those that desire to preserve financial resources and/or are contending with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, that can hamper educational goals, we are the ideal place of study.

 

We provide students with a stimulating environment that builds self confidence and empowers them to pursue their chosen carrier path with hope and enthusiasm. To this end Auburn College uses the Haven-Empowerment teaching model - a teaching method developed and refined by our founder, J.P. McLaughlin. This teaching system provides a comfortable and challenging setting where students can exercise their newly acquired knowledge and skills as they learn.

 

The college offers tuitions from ESOL, Functional Skills, BTEC, to Higher Education, and we are an approved centre for NCFE awards and qualifications.

 

In addition to gaining knowledge at Auburn College students can participate in traineeships and apprenticeships in the media arts with our partners Blazefm and TCNN (The Citizens News Network). Students can also participate in our upcoming Social Entrepreneur BTEC program. Or, with Auburn College’s extensive connections throughout the Third Sector - the fastest growing sector of our economy - students can further network for work experience and employment opportunities.

 

Social changes and technologies are developing at an ever accelerating rate. Without an education this generation will not be able to keep up or find meaningful employment. With rising education costs already more than 40% of today’s learners are not be able to repay their student loans. And they are finding themselves caught in the vicious cycle of borrowing to pay for more education, more education so they can earn more to pay off student loans, and so on.

 

Affordable, quality education is more important than ever before. Come join us at Auburn College; learn, grow and expand your horizons!
