Weston College has been selected to pioneer an innovative approach to adult learning.
Thanks to an award from the government’s Flexible Learning Fund, the College will launch a unique range of digital courses that enable adults to learn alongside other commitments.
The courses, which are designed for people who are unable to study full-time, will be launched in January 2019.
Learners can study the courses outside of regular working hours through a mixture of face-to-face and online training sessions.
The new courses include:
- Investigating Enterprise Skills, Level 2 Award
- An Introduction to Leadership and Management, Level 2 Award
- Autism Awareness, Level 2 Award
- Customer Service in a Health and Social Care Settings, Level 2 Certificate
- Maintaining a Tenancy, Entry Level 3 Award
- IT User Skills, Level 1 Certificate
These courses are free for adults that meet the eligibility criteria.
Anne Milton, Apprenticeship and Skills Minister, said: “These projects are an opportunity for people to get the skills they need to kick-start their working life.
“I’m really excited about these projects, which will help people learn the skills they need to grow and succeed in lots of different jobs.
“Whether working already or returning to work, it can be difficult for people to fit training around their busy lives. This funding aims to find out how providers and employers can work together to better meet the needs of adults of all ages, who want the opportunity to learn important new skills and change their lives.”
