Learn something new with Adult Skills and Community Learning

Adult Skills and Community Learning service are hosting an open day for new learners on Wednesday 10 April. Everyone is welcome to come along to Wellington House from 10 am till 7 pm.

The day will provide the chance to meet tutors and ask questions about the courses on offer. A wide range of courses is available, including English, maths, IT, creative skills, and professional courses. There will be an opportunity to enrol to courses on the day. Career and job search experts will be on hand to help advise students on career routes and make course suggestions.

Information will also be available on support while you study, such as financial assistance for childcare or travel costs. Course discounts are available in some cases, so make sure to bring proof of benefits or low income to help speed up enrolment.

David Shepherd, Service Director of Regeneration and Property, said: “We’d like to encourage anyone interested in learning new skills to come along to the open day for an informal chat. You’re sure to find a course that will suit you.

“Adult Skills and Community Learning are doing a great job of helping people achieve their potential. They’ve recently received a rating of ‘Good’ from Ofsted, which is brilliant news for the service. The courses on offer can help you achieve your goals, build your career and improve your wellbeing.”

The open day will take place at Wellington House, Floor 2, above the library on Market Street.
