Adults interested in boosting their skills or improving their wellbeing can now sign up for free or low cost courses.
Staffordshire County Council’s community learning service has unveiled a new range of courses for people aged 19 or over who live in the county.
Fresh off the heels of receiving a GOOD Ofsted rating, the service has a wide range of courses available whether people want to learn new skills for the workplace, are keen to learn something new, want to make community connections or improve personal wellbeing.
Philip White, Staffordshire County Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economy and Skills, said:
“These courses can be a game-changer for the people who choose to take them up. They're not just an investment in individual futures; they're an investment in the future of Staffordshire.
Whether you're looking to upskill, support your family's learning journey, or simply improve your wellbeing, there's a course tailored for you.”
Courses are conducted in safe community locations across Staffordshire all led by expert local learning providers. Courses on offer include:
A range of special family learning courses are also available for families to learn together and for adults to obtain essential skills to support other members of their family to learn. These include Maths courses to help parents to help their children at school, to parenting and baby bonding, and even family wildlife and nature courses.
Most courses are fully funded and free, thanks to subsidies from Staffordshire County Council and other funding bodies. Plus, with both online and classroom-based options, there's a flexible learning solution for everyone.
People can sign up for courses and find out more on the Staffordshire Community Learning website.
