MAKE 2020 DIFFERENT

To make 2020 different, why not take up a free course with Street Learning in the New Year? No previous qualifications needed, but you must be aged 19 or over.  As well as learning new skills and interests, you will meet new people and Street Learning courses improve your opportunities to find a new job or a career.

“Taking up a course and learning something new can open up new horizons,” said Cllr Roy Galley, Wealden Cabinet member with responsibility for employment opportunities. “Confidence, working as a group, and practical skills can be the additional benefits of taking part in Street Learning. For many there is the additional discovery that learning can be enjoyable.”

Courses for Wealden and Eastbourne residents cover cookery, Information Technology, website creation, personal assertiveness, drawing, handicrafts, and even turning household rubbish into sculpture.

The courses are held at Hailsham, Uckfield, Crowborough, Heathfield and Eastbourne.

IT for You is an opportunity to learn, improve or refresh your computer skills. You will receive one to one tuition in an informal environment.

Recycled sculptures for fun is a one day course which is being held at the James West Community Centre in Hailsham and the Barn Centre, Newick.

Courses at Eastbourne include printing, cookery, including healthy diet on a budget and sugarcraft, personal resilience and help with IT.

A  new course  in computer coding and animation for 8 - 13 year olds is being launched at Eastbourne Library in January. There are plans  for a web-based coding course for adults.

Booking is essential. Further details about all the courses are available in the January – March 2020 Street Learning brochure which can be downloaded from the Wealden web site or contact your local library.

Free distance learning courses for people aged 19 or over are available from the East Sussex College. For more information, visit www.indenpentlearning@sussexdowns.ac.uk
