About Ellon Learning Centre

Overview

The Ellon Learning Centre is part of the new Ellon Academy Community Campus which opened in August 2015. It is an annexe to the larger school building, but with separate access for College students.


Facilities

The centre has multiple classrooms, a reception area, lockers, a comfortable social space and an outdoor area specifically designed for construction projects. A practical work area is also available to accommodate school-based groups for Skills for Work programmes, concentrating on subjects like energy and engineering.


Location

The Ellon Learning Centre is based next to the new Ellon Academy building in Ellon, Aberdeenshire. It is less than 20 miles from Aberdeen, and well situated for those based in rural areas.


Transport Links

The Ellon Learning Centre is well served by local transport links, with buses leaving the centre of Aberdeen regularly, and buses from other rural towns and villages available as well. The Centre is also easily accessible by road, due to its central position within Ellon.

“I think my story shows the diversity a career in Beauty Therapy can offer. Not only can it allow you to travel, work anywhere in the world, but also give you the choice to work in an established salon or set up your own business and become your own boss. The opportunities are endless. It’s such a fun, rewarding career and the job satisfaction from making your client feel better about themselves is priceless. “

“I was so nervous about starting College and felt uncertain about my abilities but NESCol completely changed that. I loved the course, learned so much from my lecturers and it gave me a new found confidence. It’s not easy at times being a busy Mum and juggling study but I have proven I can do it. When I started at NESCol I would never have believed I’d end up studying at a prestigious art school and firmly believe that my time at College has given me an advantage in coping with the demands of a degree. I’d say to any parents out there who feel they want a second chance at education to go for it and grab the opportunity with both hands, it really can change your life. “
