Organised by St Helens Borough Council’s Adult and Community Learning (ACL) service, the event is ideal for residents looking to make a positive change towards realising their potential in 2022, whether it’s improving skills, gaining qualifications, finding a job or becoming a volunteer.
Experienced staff members will be on hand to offer information and advice about a number of courses – most of which are free – including, Photography and Wellbeing, Get that Job – as well as technology support with computers and tablets.
Courses leading to qualifications up to and including level 2 in subjects such as English and maths, ESOL, Caring for Children and Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (Teaching Assistants) are also available.
Councillor Kate Groucutt, Cabinet Member for Education, Skills and Business, said:
“Our Adult and Community Learning service has helped many people achieve things they didn’t think were possible over the years – from older people becoming more confident with technology; people overcoming stress and anxiety – to residents settling in our borough from other countries learning the English language.
“At the start of a new year, now is the perfect time to discover a new you – and our fantastic staff will guide you every step of the way.”
The Adult and Community Learning open event will be held in St Helens Library within the World of Glass Museum on Thursday 6 January between 10:00am-2:00pm.
