Just imagine what you can achieve. Adults do courses for many reasons. To help get a job or get a better one. To get out and about and meet new people. To keep the mind active. To learn new skills and subjects. To learn skills to make life in the UK easier and in some cases possible.
In Nottinghamshire we offer upwards of 7,000 hours of courses for adults every year. We work in rural and urban areas covering a wide variety of subjects. In Nottingham, for example, we have several thousand hours of craft based courses including sugar craft, dress making, silversmithing, mosaic making and knitting to name but a few. In Bassetlaw we are currently piloting courses designed to support people in getting to grips with online job hunting and meeting the digital requirements set out by Universal Credit. In Radcliffe-on-Trent students are studying Latin and the History of Ireland. Multiply this diversity across the 14 branches, student groups and community programme and you can see that we have plenty on offer.
