Our Lifelong Learning Service provides a flexible way for you to learn. It allows you the freedom to study where, when and how you wish. You can learn new skills or up-date existing knowledge.
The main Open Learning Centre is situated at Wrexham Library. There are smaller collections of Open Learning materials at Chirk and Rhos libraries.
Open learning packs cover such subjects as:
Each Open Learning pack is a complete unit with all you need for successful study. Contents may include workbooks, cassettes, videos or computer software.
There isn’t one! All packs can be borrowed free of charge and can be kept for three months at a time.
Computers are available at all libraries for you to use free of charge.
We also have information about local and national courses and contact details for local education providers. A partnership with local colleges enables us to make arrangements for you to obtain further guidance, tutor support or gain qualifications.
Our staff are happy to help and advise on the selection and use of materials.
The Open University is one of the largest providers of part-time higher education in the UK. In almost every subject area, more people choose to study part-time with the OU than with any other university.
