Launch of the latest Adult Learning Programme

Published Thursday, 24th August 2017

An exciting range of new adult learning courses is being launched in libraries across Worcestershire next month.

The programme is made up of courses of varying lengths plus one day workshops, in a diverse range of subjects including: modern languages, health and safety, social media, CV writing and interview skills.

Cllr Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member Responsible for Communities said: "There are so many courses to choose from in the new adult learning programme.  Whether you are looking to learn new skills to help you find work, want to be creative and take up a new hobby or need some business help, the programme really does have something to offer everyone.

"Many of the courses are being run in our local libraries which are very welcoming and friendly.  Class sizes are usually quite small, and concessions are offered on a number of the courses.  I would certainly urge everyone to take a look at opportunities available."

Colin Barnett, Adult Learning Manager for Worcestershire County Council said: "We have gathered a lot of feedback from past learners which confirms overwhelmingly that most of our learners feel much more confident as a result of learning.  For many it has provided new friendships and played a large role in helping them find employment.  Evidence also suggests that learning can improve mental well-being.  So there are wide ranging benefits to sign up to one of our courses."

Adult learning course prospectuses will be available in libraries from early September.  You can discover more information about our service or book onto a course using our adult learning app  in Apple  Google  Amazon  Microsoft  search for adult learning in Worcestershire  or access the website Make a difference to your life through learning.
