Make 2012 your year of learning

Make 2012 your year to learn a new skill, take up a new hobby or develop your job skills with the West Sussex Adult and Community Learning Service.

Brochures are being sent out now, tailored to local demand and containing the Spring/Summer programme of courses for each area.

West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Education and Schools Peter Griffiths said:

“We learnt from our extensive student consultation last year that house delivery of brochures was really appreciated. They proved a real success, with enrolments in some areas increasing by as much as 48 per cent. The new brochures are currently being delivered direct to West Sussex households.

“The adult learning service provides many courses for all abilities. If you’re looking to change career or develop your job skills, then why not see what’s available. It could be the opportunity you need to start a new career.”

More than 2,000 courses will be held by the Adult and Community Learning Service throughout the year, from maths and English skills to computer training and bookkeeping. The maths and English courses, up to and including Level 2 (equivalent to GCSE grade A-C), are free to students and give a qualification that helps people to go on to further training or get a job.

The brochures cover the following areas:

·          Midhurst, Chichester, Southbourne and Selsey
·          Bognor Regis, Felpham and Westergate
·          Crawley
·          Horsham, Billingshurst and Storrington
·          Littlehampton and Rustington
·          Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath
·          Worthing, Lancing, Shoreham, Southwick and Steyning
