Do you want to improve your literacy skills to better manage everyday tasks, control your personal finances, move into employment or get a promotion, or support your children’s learning?
If the answer is yes, Buckinghamshire Adult Learning could have the answer. They are launching free literacy courses for adults to help with everyday English language skills.
Starting from Monday 17 July and every week to the end of August, Buckinghamshire Adult Learning has drop-in workshops at:
- 10am to noon every Monday at Quarrendon ALC, Holman Street, Aylesbury, HP19 9LJ.
- 10am to noon every Wednesday at Millbrook ALC, Mill End Road, High Wycombe, HP12 4BA.
- 10am to noon every Thursday at Chesham ALC, Chartridge Lane, Chesham, HP5 2RG.
These sessions will provide learning and support to improve your English, maths and digital skills. Further information and advice will be provided to identify the correct next steps for you to take.
Anita Cranmer, Cabinet Member for Education & Children’s Services, said:
“School is not the only chance you get to learn things, it’s never too late to improve your skills. Better understanding of English can transform your daily life, from making the most of your money, to getting a new job.
“I would urge anyone who feels lacking in confidence when it comes to literacy to take this opportunity and improve their life with these free workshops.
“These government-funded workshops are part of our new ‘Opportunity Bucks’ programme, which aims to improve outcomes for people in Buckinghamshire. Gaining new skills and qualifications can open up a range of opportunities for people, from new jobs to greater confidence in everyday life.”
The drop-in workshops are free to adults over the age of 19 who do not already have a GCSE at grade C or equivalent in English.
