About our Courses
Our Community courses are for everyone aged 19+ and the great thing is, for many courses, you don’t need any prior skills or qualifications to sign up.
Through our courses you can learn something new, as a hobby or interest, or even look to develop the skills to help you change career.
Our friendly community learning team will listen to what you want to do, and do everything they can to help you achieve it; when you enrol on a community course you’ll also have access to all the facilities available at our main campus.
We have a small selection of amazing courses that can help you to progress in your career.
We are always looking for new courses to offer, our current work-related courses include: counselling, first aid, understanding substance misuse and psychology as well as a range of courses in photography, sustainable design and dressmaking.
What do our learners think of our courses?
Kathryn was working as a dinner lady in a primary school when personal traumas had a major emotional impact on her and her children and she just felt lost and alone. One morning she woke up and decided that she needed to do something to change her story and to help herself so she walked into Pembrokeshire College and enquired about courses that could help her to help others. Helping people was always something she wanted to do due to personal traumas in her past.
Kathryn decided on Counselling and started with a short introductory course. She loved this course so it led to another short course which then led to a year-long Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills.
Kathryn said “When I first started at College, I didn’t have a voice, by the time I was studying for my Level 3, I had found it”
The two-year Level 4 in Therapeutic Counselling took a huge amount of time, hard work and commitment alongside working and being a mum. When Kathryn completed this course, she felt like a completely different person. She is now working as a Counsellor so the person who didn’t feel as though she had a voice is able to make sure that other people’s are heard.
