Courses based at Banff Academy are under development, and we’d like to hear your feedback about what you’d like to see on offer.

NESCol are currently working with partner organisations including Aberdeenshire Council Community Learning and Development to create a programme which meets the needs of the local community and industries. As well as offering courses at Banff Academy, there is an aim to run classes at the new community sports facility in Banff (Deveron Centre) which is adjacent to the school.
