Business Details

We provide students with a stimulating environment that builds self confidence and empowers them to pursue their chosen carrier path with hope and enthusiasm. To this end Auburn College uses the Haven-Empowerment teaching model - a teaching method developed and refined by our founder, J.P. McLaughlin. This teaching system provides a comfortable and challenging setting where students can exercise their newly acquired knowledge and skills as they learn. The college offers tuitions from ESOL, Functional Skills, BTEC, to Higher Education, and we are an approved centre for NCFE awards and qualifications. In addition to gaining knowledge at Auburn College students can participate in traineeships and apprenticeships in the media arts with our partners Blazefm and TCNN (The Citizens News Network).

Students can also participate in our upcoming Social Entrepreneur BTEC program. Or, with Auburn Collegeís extensive connections throughout the Third Sector - the fastest growing sector of our economy - students can further network for work experience and employment opportunities. Social changes and technologies are developing at an ever accelerating rate. Without an education this generation will not be able to keep up or find meaningful employment. With rising education costs already more than 40% of todayís learners are not be able to repay their student loans. And they are finding themselves caught in the vicious cycle of borrowing to pay for more education, more education so they can earn more to pay off student loans, and so on. Affordable, quality education is more important than ever before. Come join us at Auburn College; learn, grow and expand your horizons!

Communication Skills Course

Confident communicators arenít born, they are made. They learn what makes people listen and respond, and they practice and use those skills every day. Those skills arenít some secret knowledge, either, but a simple understanding of how and why communication works, and the ways in which we can enhance what we say to make sure our message is clear, consistent and compelling.

Communicating with confidence ensures you get your ideas across, and that people remember you, and what you say. It is the best, and simplest, way of achieving your objectives. It helps in any number of situations: talking with colleagues, your boss, one-to-one and in departmental meetings, in conversation with existing and potential clients, in appraisals and performance reviews, or in maintaining and improving everyday relationships.
