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.

What our Students Say

“The course provides you the skills to communicate whatever it is that you’re trying to sell. It’s been fantastic. It gives you a really supportive environment – especially if you are coming back into the world of education from work. That’s the route that I took and it’s been really fantastic in that regard. But if you’re a school leaver as well, College gives you practical skills alongside the theory that you’re learning, so even if you decide not to go to uni, you’ve got those skills there and you can utilise them to go into work. It’s really, really valuable in that way.”
