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.
Face-to-Face and online
Our Face-to-Face courses take place in various locations throughout Greater Manchester and Cheshire, with day trips further afield. Of necessity they address themselves to a mostly British audience – although if you are in the area as a tourist or on business you are very welcome
We also have online courses, known as:
MANCENT School of the Air
—–Online courses for everyone -everywhere.
MANCENT School of the Air, complete with our very own project mascot: Kylie. Since 2020 we enjoy the company of a large number of you and your friends from all over the world who have come together in our various courses using Zoom, to learn about languages, literature, history and politics.
Over the last four years our online courses have gone from strength to strength and we are looking forward to continuing them into 2023/4.
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).
Some of our online courses have also Eventbrite links that allow you to pay safely online – alternatively, contact your course lecturer for BACS or Paypal details.
If you want to register from outside the UK, we recommend the Eventbrite links provided or alternatively, contact the course lecturer to send you a PayPal invoice.
