James Colburn (79) with Candle holder

At 79 years young, James Cockburn was sick of looking at four walls at home so had a look through the College’s prospectus in August to see if there was anything that would appeal to him and hopefully, he could learn a new skill.



Whatever course you choose, you'll get the highest level of training from specialist tutors, benefiting from their knowledge and experience of working not just in education but also in industry.
