Fleming College has officially opened the doors of a new educational facility that will attract more students and train more workers in the heart of Northumberland County.
Positioned just outside Cobourgâ€™s downtown core, the Cobourg Learning Centre is a 3,325 square-foot facility located at 609 William St.
The Learning Centre will host Flemingâ€™s established programs like Academic Upgrading, Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada, Corporate Training and continuing education classes.
â€śPrograms like these are the bedrock for developing and maintaining a viable, skilled workforce in the Northumberland community,â€ť said Fleming College President Maureen Adamson. â€śFleming has had a presence in Cobourg for many years, and we are delighted to maintain that presence and be an important part of the catchment area for Cobourg and Northumberland for years to come.â€ť
â€śThis is a fantastic step forward for Fleming College,â€ť said Board Chair Fred Clifford. â€śThis new facility has a tremendous impact on our ability to offer Flemingâ€™s outstanding programs to more people in the Northumberland region.â€ť
President Adamson and Chair Clifford were joined at a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday, April 27, 2022, by Cobourg Mayor John Henderson and Northumberland-Peterborough South MPP David Piccini.
