Adult Learners Week, 19th-23rd May 2008
Wednesday, 14th May 2008.
Course information will be available in Haverhill on 20 May. There are an ever greater number of courses available to everyone in Suffolk this year, from leisure and hobbies to important qualifications and new work skills. During Adult Learners Week this year our advisers are taking to the road in our Skills Information Trailer. They will be at a venue near you, to help you find a suitable course. Many of the courses are free, and there are free "taster" sessions for some of the longer courses offered.
Now in its 17th year, Adult Learners' Week is a wonderful celebration of the energy and inspiration that people bring to their learning. We are highlighting what recent learners have achieved to inspire others to have a go. For you it might be learning a new skill, learning for fun, getting that vital qualification for a new job or catching up on learning missed at school. Come along and talk to us on the trailer, or visit our website below:
Suffolk County Councillor Graham Newman, Portfolio Holder for Adult and Community Services said: "These courses are for everyone. If you need better skills or more confidence to get a job, we have the courses. If you want particular skills like cookery, floristry, care, beauty or using computers, our staff are ready to help. You might need to have a maths qualification, or be a Dad wanting to improve your parenting skills: it's all in our booklet and online. And if you want to develop an interest of yours - perhaps photography, henna or Indian head massage - then we can help. Our courses have changed many people's lives for the better, why shouldn't you be one of them?"
The trailer will be at Haverhill(between 11am and 2pm)on Tuesday 20th May, Peas Hill Market Square (near Argos).
Why not come along and see us!
Courses are aimed to meet a great variety of needs and interests in the Suffolk community including skills to get back into work, qualifications and skills to build a better career, courses for families to learn together and fitness and health work. Basic skills such as English and maths, English as a second language and food hygiene are covered, as well as specific courses for people with learning disabilities. People's training needs can be assessed, and a personal programme devised to suit them. Some courses can help people recover from severe illness or other personal crises.
Courses are provided on behalf of employers to offer staff training in for example better presentations, food handling and care work.
The Prospectus booklet offers full details of all the courses, and how to get in touch and book a place.
