Bookings open for new year adult education courses

Residents can now sign-up to learn something new in the new year with our adult education service.

Courses for the new spring term start in January 2021 with a mixture of online, COVID-secure face-to-face and blended (mixture of both) courses.

COVID-secure safety measures will be in place across all of our community education centres. A wide range of courses are on offer giving residents the chance to gain a new qualification, pick up a new skill or develop a new hobby.

Courses include:

– Maths and English
– Languages
– Digital skills
– Wellbeing and personal development
– Art and crafts
– Food safety
Plus many more. The course brochures are now available.

Our Cabinet Member for Young People, Councillor Alex Dale said: We hope 2021 will be a more positive year for everyone and our adult education courses are a great way of getting the new year off to a great start.

“If you’re looking to pick up a new skill to improve your employment opportunities or you simply want to learn for fun, we’re sure to have something for you.

“By offering a mixture of online, face-to-face and blended courses you have the option to choose a course which you feel most comfortable with.

“We’d like to say thank you to all our learners for their understanding and co-operation during these uncertain times. We’ll continue to strive to create the best possible learning environment for you throughout next year and beyond.”

Some online courses can be done at a pace that suits you. Whilst other courses will be delivered remotely using Zoom where learners will be part of a live class with a tutor and fellow learners.
