All Further Education providers have a duty to safeguard their learners and keep them safe from being exploited by extremists. The Prevent Duty is not about discouraging our learners from having political and religious views and concerns, but about supporting them to use those concerns or act on them in non-extremist ways.
Prevent Duty: If you Notice anything unusual, Check it out and them Share it by contacting 0191 277 3502 or email Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org remember – Notice – Check – Share. Here is a link to our Prevent animation
Newcastle City Council (which Newcastle City Learning are part of) also have a generic email address which you can also use to report any concerns you may have about Prevent: email@example.com

Our new Spring Term 2019 brochure is now available! Get enrolling now for your courses starting after Easter, and if you are very quick there are a few courses in late March and early April you can still join. You can download the brochure (pdf, 6.65MB), or if you live in the City they will delivered through your letterbox very shortly. Remember you can enrol on-line for many courses, or we are happy to take your call or see you in centres too.
Our new learner handbook is now available here (pdf 1.81MB). Packed full of useful information about the service, we hope you will find it helpful. We'll cover a lot of the topics during our new induction process too, and you will be given a copy of the handbook to take away with you at the start of your course.
There have been changes to how education courses are funded for learners over 19 years old. Level 3 and above courses will no longer be funded by the Government (unless you are aged 19-23 years old and it is your first full Level 3 qualification) but you may qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover your course fees.
If this loan is to fund an Access to HE Diploma leading to a completed degree, your Advanced Learner Loan will be written off so you don't have to pay it back.
It doesn't matter about your household income or even credit checks to qualify for a loan, and you don't have to pay anything back until you are earning over £21,000 a year.
Loans are available for people living in the UK on the first day of their course and have lived in this country, the Channel Islands of the Isle of Man for three years immediately before this.
Talk to our centre reception staff to get more details and your course offer letter which will have the information you will need to complete your loan application.
