Newark College opens new Adult Education Centre offering courses including languages, art, ICT and crafts
The expansion of community courses at a new hub dedicated to adult learning has been praised by the leader of Newark and Sherwood District Council.
David Lloyd visited Newark College to open the new Adult Education Centre.
The centre provides a range of short courses and training opportunities, enabling people to explore a new hobby, improve basic skills for work or get a taster of a possible new career.
Subjects include languages, art, ICT, electrical installations, furniture making, musical instrument crafts and more.
It is open daily and provides a relaxed environment to study and learn, where people can also book to use laptops to complete the free online courses offered by the college.
Mr Lloyd said: “This further investment to college is brilliant news for our community. I’ve been to look at the new centre and it’s fantastic.
“It offers an informal setting for all manner of learning, not just for employment, but a whole wealth of things that will bring people together to generate new skills going forward.
“I’m delighted we have this focus now, on different people throughout our community, to improve their education, lift their aspirations, help them with their skills, but crucially bring them together in a warm, welcoming environment.”
The college’s advanced curriculum coach, Penny Taylor, said: “We are so pleased to be empowering adults in Newark to come back to education, so they can retrain, reskill or have fun learning a new hobby with like-minded people.”
