What Our Students say:

Before starting my numeracy course with Bury Adult Learning Service, I was a bit unsure as to whether it would be like going back to school, but from the first day I felt completely at ease.

The tutors didn't speak to you like a pupil or student; you were spoken to like an adult. Any problems I had with the work were dealt with straight away and given a full breakdown by the tutor.

The tutors always make sure you fully understand a subject before moving on.

After completing my Level 1 and Level 2 I have gone on to higher level study.

If I wouldn't have got my Level 2 numeracy I would have been put on the Level 2 access course but I am now Level 3 access, so I can only say thank you to every member of staff at the Bury Adult Learning Centre for helping me achieve a step towards my ultimate goal." Gabrielle
