The Street Learning programme has been released for September – December 2022.
The project offers residents aged 19 and above free courses to help develop new skills, enhance existing ones, and expand on their education whilst socialising and gaining new hobbies.
A range of free courses are available to help boost employment opportunities such as maths, English and accounting as well as sugar-craft, cookery and felting for people who want to develop their hobbies.
The courses are provided in local community venues including East Sussex College in Eastbourne, Uckfield College, Uckfield Civic Centre or online.
Councillor Philip Lunn, Wealden council’s portfolio holder with responsibility for Economic Development, said, “Street Learning offers new opportunities and education to residents within Wealden and Eastbourne and it’s great to be able to help our residents develop skills and increase access to job opportunities.
“A wide variety of courses and workshops will be available – and it’s fantastic that we can offer a service to encourage people to have fun while they learn.”
Street Learning is a project run by Wealden District Council in partnership with ACRES, East Sussex College, Sussex Community Development Association, East Sussex County Council Library, Job Centre Plus, GRH Training, Compass Community Arts and Heathercroft.
