Joy Aiken, community development manager, said: “Whether you are looking to upskill, reskill or want to try something a bit different we have a wide range of courses to choose from for individuals and businesses.

"Funding may be available so please get in touch to find out more.”

From February NESCol is introducing an active health and wellbeing programme. Over eight weeks the focus is on improving individual health and wellbeing, part of which is creating a tailored fitness programme to increase overall fitness levels. It is available as three-hour evening classes at both Fraserburgh and Aberdeen.

For hair and beauty enthusiasts there are new courses dedicated to mastering the fundamentals – basic blow drying and styling; basic bridal hair; introduction to barbering; introduction to make-up artistry plus gel polish services. These evening courses, which are held over four to six weeks, are available at both Aberdeen City and Fraserburgh campuses.

For those electrically minded there are two new courses running at Fraserburgh. PAT Testing and 18th Edition Wiring Regulations both of which can be funded by Individual Training Accounts, up to a value of £200 but this fund closes on February 28 so interested applications should not delay in applying.

For businesses there are also options for funding through the Flexible Workforce Development Fund.
