Spring is a perfect time to grow…
The nights are getting lighter and this encourages us to make the most of our days! Why not grab the chance to find a new hobby and develop a new skill? We have lots of Easter themed arts & craft workshops, you can boost your wellbeing, brush up on your digital skills or learn Spanish ready for your next summer holiday! And much more besides…
Our aim is 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, take a look at our workshops and courses for 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).
