Fircroft College of Adult Education transforms the lives of hundreds of people every year through education and training. The residential college, based in the serene grounds of a former Cadbury residence, provides a wide range of courses from basic-level Maths and English, through to pre-university qualifications. Many learners arrive at Fircroft with few formal qualifications, after being unable to succeed in education first time around - often through no fault of their own. Many progress through a series of short courses and go on to complete the Access to Higher Education Diploma which leads them on to university. Twice a year we have the pleasure of designing the short course prospectus, telling the story of how Fircroft continues to transform lives and careers.
