Learning Hubs

Learning Hubs at Tameside College

Our Learning Hubs combine traditional learning material such as books, journals, DVDs with our on-line resources. Through our online library catalogue you can find the resources you need for your course or just ask a member of the team!

Introduction to Our Learning Hubs

The College actively encourages our students to learn independently. All the books you need for your course, DVDs and magazines can be borrowed from any of the Hubs. You can search for books and other resources through the library catalogue, which is available below:

Reading lists

A reading list may be created for your course by your tutors or the Learning Hub staff. This list will include resources available in the Learning Hubs as well as additional materials to support you with your course. Your reading list will be available through the Learning Hubs LearningBox page.
