Adults looking to improve their career prospects are being invited to take advantage of the free activities that are taking place between Saturday, May 18 and Friday, May 24 to celebrate Adult Learners’ Week 2013.
“Whether you’re an individual thinking about improving your current job prospects or you want to learn something new, or an organisation looking to help support adults with lifelong learning, Adult Learners’ Week is all about you,” said a spokesperson.
Why not take advantage of the free taster sessions at Lincolnshire Regional College in Skegness when it opens for the week and invite parents of future learners and members of the public to try their hands at some of the activities that learners take part in every day.
You could join art tutors, to learn some of the theories and techniques used over throughout history. Or ICT specialists will be showing visitors how to get the best out of Microsoft applications. There will also be plumbing and electrical Installation teams holding demonstrations throughout the week.
Gavin Hosford, head of centre for Lincolnshire Regional College, urges all to get involved, he said: “It’s a great way to get a taster of the course and then gain some valuable transferable skills which could provide opportunities in the workplace.
“We provide courses which are flexible enough so people can attend while supporting a family or who have other commitments.”
