Bury Adult Learning Service will be offering a wide range of courses during autumn that are open to all adults over the age of 19.
The guide showcases the courses on offer, including daytime and evening classes and courses that offer professionally recognised certificates, to support learners in returning to education, self-improvement or a career change.
Subjects include health and social care, customer service, food safety, child care, computing, employability skills, maths, English, independent living, confidence building, wellbeing, and more – all of which are designed to improve learners’ work prospects, life skills and mental wellbeing.
In addition, more creative courses are available in areas such as arts and crafts, cookery, creative textiles, soft furnishings/upholstery, dressmaking, languages and creative writing.
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the service has adopted measures to ensure that learners are kept safe, including reducing learner numbers in classes to comply with social distancing, and offering learners the opportunity to learn online or through blended learning which is a mixture of classroom and online learning.
Courses start towards the end of September and take place at Bury Adult Learning Centre, Ramsbottom Library and Prestwich Library Adult Learning Centre, and various community venues.
