The Manchester Continuing Education Network (MANCENT), is a loose network of independent lecturers and students with a firm belief that Continuing Education at a high level should be available to all who want it.
It tries to match interested students with highly qualified and experienced Continuing Education and University lecturers in the Arts and Sciences.
How it works:
MANCENT operates as a loose network allowing independent self-employed lecturers to choose their own fees and venues, while offering students the convenience of a one-stop shop when looking for courses in their field of interest, by offering a joint listing of all events.
On March 17th we launched our Distance learning programme for Summer 2020. MANCENT School of the Air, complete with our very own project mascot: Kylie, and we enjoyed the large number of you and your friends who have come together in our various courses using Zoom, Webex, Skype and Whatsapp, to learn about languages, literature, history and politics.
Today, June 11, this Summer term is coming slowly to an end, and in a normal year we (as most of you) would now be looking forward to three months of gentle gardening, researching and travelling. However, 2020 is not like other years and as travelling seems to be out of the question for a bit longer, we have decided to continue our courses through the summer months and we hope that you will join us in the MANCENT SUMMER CAMP 2020.
We had also hoped to see all of you in Autumn 2020 back in our usual venues, but government and WHO advice makes this now look highly unlikely. We will closely follow developments, but in the meantime are slowly moving the autumn courses into an online format, if you have already booked for any of these courses, the lecturers will be in touch to update you on the what is happening in each individual case.
Please, take a look at our current programme, which you can find by clicking the drop-down menus.
All courses can be booked by completing the MANCENT booking form and accompanying it with a cheque for the correct fee to the course lecturer (or if that is not possible to the Course Director).
