Wealden – Street Learning programme released

Street Learning programme released

The Street Learning programme has been released for April to July 2023. It offers FREE practical, educational and wellbeing courses to residents in Wealden, aged 19 and above.

The project offers free courses to help develop new skills, enhance existing ones, and expands on education, encouraging growth and self-confidence.

The booklet is split into different areas:  Health and Wellbeing, Employment and Education, Creativity, Family and Practical Skills – so there really is something for everyone.

The courses are both practical and fun and provided in local community venues including East Sussex College in Eastbourne, local libraries, Uckfield College, Uckfield Civic Centre or online.

Councillor Philip Lunn, Wealden council’s portfolio holder with responsibility for Commercial, Economic Development and Leisure, said, “The Street Learning courses provide residents with a range of courses to boost confidence, increase employment opportunities or to have fun and start a new hobby.”

Street Learning is a project run by Wealden District Council in partnership with ACRES, East Sussex College, East Sussex County Council Library, Job Centre Plus, GRH Training, Compass Community Arts and Heathercroft.
