Adult Learning Event
Adults thinking of re-training or learning something new and interesting will get help to pick the right course at Exeter's Adult learning enrolment event next Wednesday.
Exeter College is holding its dedicated adult 19+ learning enrolment event at the Centre for Creative Industries off Queen Street from 4pm – 8pm on Wednesday September 5th where visitors will be able to find out about the huge range of courses that can be taken at the College's facilities and in community and school venues across the city from this September. Adults will also be able to find out about the Government's changes to the funding for courses that means that some courses, particularly those designed to help with English and Maths, may be free to some learners.
Rachel Iles, head of advice and recruitment at the college says "There really is something for everyone from technical courses to leisure courses and from basic numeracy and literacy courses to GCSEs, NVQS and higher education qualifications."
She continues, "Adults are asking us for courses that will help them retrain so that they can secure the career they're keen on or that they want to get further qualifications so that they can get the promotion they want in their current job. We have the experts on hand who can help adult learners choose the course that suits their ability and helps them with their next step – whether that’s a new job or career or a new hobby. We have many adults who are contacting us who want to learn new skills and discover new talents.
"We're particularly keen to encourage adults who perhaps feel they missed out on education during their school years to come and enrol on a course. We have a wide range of courses that help ease people back into learning – no-one needs to feel that they will not be able to cope with a course".
Rachel notes that as adults with busy lives it is easy to put off further studies. She adds "Whether you'd like to train to become a teacher, improve your English, keep fit or learn cake decoration, we have so many adult learning courses. Even if you are unsure what you want to do next, it is definitely worth coming along to find out whats on offer"
