A time for fresh beginnings…
January is the perfect time to start a new chapter and nurturing a new skill can have powerful results! This month, you can immerse yourself in arts & crafts, brush up on your photography and wrap up warm to embrace fitness and outdoors. Or, develop your knowledge of neurodiversity and discover hints and tips for childcare and parenting, plus much more!
Join us, and we aim to help you improve your health and wellbeing, gain confidence, learn new skills, boost your employment prospects and enable you to progress when and how you want.
We’ve made it easier for you to decide where to start and what workshops or courses to choose. We’re offering four levels, so you can see at a glance what would suit you…
- Taster – Short workshop suitable for beginners and no longer than 1 day in duration. Designed to provide an overview, intro to a subject. Suitable for learners who wish to gain insight to the subject and see if it’s for them.
- Starter – Beginner level workshop/course, which explores the basics of a subject. Suitable for learners who know they wish to learn about the chosen subject but don’t yet have knowledge and experience.
- Developer – Suitable for learners who have completed a Starter Level in the chosen subject or within a similar subject area, and who wish to progress and explore the subject in more depth.
- Enhancer – Suitable for those who have completed a Developer Level and wish to explore further and learn more extensively.
Do remember to check back regularly for new courses added throughout the month too. And if you’d like to plan further ahead, check out what’s available in February, March and April. Plus, why not sign up for our monthly newsletter so you don’t miss out when our latest opportunities are released…
OUR FUNDING RULES HAVE CHANGED – HOW THIS AFFECTS YOU…
You can only enrol on ONE free* workshop/course at each level, e.g. one Taster, one Starter… and so on. Our new levels are designed to encourage you to learn and progress in your chosen area of interest. If you enrol on multiple workshops/courses at the same level, we’ll contact you to discuss (as there are exceptions), or you’ll be given the opportunity to pay for your place, (costs are detailed on each course page).
