Resource Centres for Learning

The United Reformed Church has four designated Resource Centres for Learning known popularly as Northern College, The Scottish College, Westminister College, and the Windermere Centre.

The teaching staff from all four Resource Centres for Learning offer learning opportunities to a wide range of people and work together with Synod and Assembly colleagues to enable effective development and delivery of relevant resources for United Reformed Church congregations.

Amongst the Resource Centres for Learning, the three Colleges are particularly responsible for Education for Ministry Phase 1 (pre-ordination or pre-commissioning training) and provide this through a variety of means, including residential study, local tutorials, supervised placements, and supported distance learning.

The United Reformed Church's engagement in adult education is shaped by active ecumenical collaboration through relevant Partnerships in England, Scotland and Wales.
