Adult & Community learning goes online
Adult & Community learning has adapted its offer so that we can support our residents as they stay home and social distance.
Why not take this time to develop your skills or just for fun from the comfort of your own home?
Offering a range of short courses and workshops, there should be something to suit everyone. We have courses to help with employability skills, boost confidence and thinking skills, health and wellbeing, eating healthily and on a budget as well helping you cope with isolation.
We also have courses for supporting family learning, phonics, supporting reading and how to manage challenging behaviour.
How are these courses delivered?
Courses are a combination of tutor-led delivery via Zoom (about an hour per session), some homework sessions and individual personalised tutor support time.
You will be emailed all the resources that you need to complete the course and will get regular feedback on how you are doing.
We also have “How to use Zoom” workshops if you think you need a bit of support with this before you start any courses.
