Lancashire County Council’s adult learning service is offering over 50 free taster courses to encourage local residents to try something new, as part of national Adult Learners’ Week.
A wide range of subjects are available, many of which have not been on offer before. Learners can try out Indian head massage, digital photos, safe banking online, history and myth, a taste of Spain or dementia awareness.
The courses, which take part between Monday 15 and Friday 19 June, will all be held in local, accessible venues across the county, such as libraries, community centres, church halls, children’s centres and schools.
Taster courses are two hours long and free of charge, making them the ideal first step for anyone who is hesitant about giving adult learning a try.
Linda Carter, Assistant Principal of Lancashire Adult Learning said: “Our free Adult Learners’ Week courses are designed to encourage people to try out adult learning and to discover the wide range of learning opportunities that are on offer in Lancashire. Adult learning can help people to gain new skills, expand their abilities and transform their lives so I hope that people will give it a go and realise that you’re never too old to learn.”
