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

Social Sciences

HND Social Sciences

“I’m so glad that I came to NESCol because it really has been a life changing experience. I think Social Sciences is a great place to be if you’re curious about the world or if there’s something that really frustrates you about the system and you’d really like to see it change. Studying an HND in Social Sciences really helped me to see the world in a better light. The department has such down to earth, friendly, normal staff and I would jump at the chance to finish my studies at the college if I could. Choose College – it really is a wonderful place!”

HND Accounting

“NESCol has made a huge difference for me and I would say to anyone considering retraining to just go for it – you’ll be surprised at what you can achieve and the difference it will make in a short time. I would highly recommend college to others who have moved to Scotland from abroad, especially if you are not sure where to start with gaining qualifications. College is a great because it gives you the option to go straight into work or continue on to further study.”
