GC launches Christmas Gift Vouchers

GC launches Christmas gift vouchers

Presents for Christmas are great. Experiences even better. But you simply can’t beat giving the gift of learning, and thanks to Gloucestershire College’s new gift vouchers, you can spoil someone special this festive season.

Now available in bespoke denominations from £10, GC Christmas gift vouchers can be used to purchase a wide range of creative, inspirational and practical courses, which will teach your nearest and dearest a new skill or hobby during a time that suits them.

Most part-time and evening courses are delivered at Cheltenham Campus and have start dates in January, a time for resolutions, which provides the perfect chance to try something new. Whether your loved one has always wanted to create insta-worthy floral arrangements, make their own clothes, sharpen their SLR shooting skills or pen their first novel, there’s a course at GC to help them reach that goal.

Plus, the vouchers can be used to purchase the more practical professional short courses – ideal for those looking to upskill in their current roles – covering everything from Microsoft Office basics, marketing and social media to conflict management, increasing productivity and more.

Head of Commercial, Amie Nutbrown, said: “Gift experiences have grown massively in popularity over the years, as people become more concerned with creating memories than collecting ‘stuff’, so we’re excited to be able to take that to the next level through our new Christmas gift vouchers for GC courses.
“It could be that your friend or family member doesn’t need anything in particular, or it would be nice for them – and you – to have something to look forward to in those bleak post-Christmas months. Whatever the reason, we’ve got a part-time or evening course to suit everyone, from creatives to professionals and everyone in between".

Course prices range from £50 to £150 and each gift voucher purchased will be delivered in an exclusive GC Christmas card, complete with the list of courses enclosed. The minimum spend is £10 and vouchers can be used as part payment towards a course. Full terms and conditions are available on the GC website.

Recreational courses include: Creative Textiles, Creative Writing for Leisure, Drawing and Painting, Dressmaking, Flower Arranging, Group Singing, Interior Design, Introduction to Gift and Wedding Floristry, Introduction to Photoshop, Introduction to Sewing Machine Skills, Mixed Media Art Journalling, Patchwork and Quilting, Photography Using SLR, Printmaking and Scriptwriting.

Professional short courses include: Assertiveness at Work; Coaching and Mentoring; Conflict Management; Content Marketing Fundamentals; Culture Change in Your Business; Effective Appraisals; Facebook and Instagram for Business; How to Have Tricky Conversations in the Workplace; Increasing Productivity Without Increasing Headcount; LinkedIn Fundamentals; LinkedIn Masterclass; Mental Toughness and Resilience; Microsoft Excel – Functions and Formula, Manipulating Data, Pivot Tables and The Basics; Steps to Setting Up Your Own Business; and Successfully Marketing Yourself.
