Adult College Courses 2020 – Thinking of retraining following COVID? Your questions answered on what’s on offer
Facebook Live event hosted by Weston College
Monday 20th July 4pm-4.45pm
If you’re an adult and have been thinking about taking a College course either to retrain, maybe as a result of redundancy in the current climate, or just want to take an evening course for pleasure, and you want to know what’s on offer and how courses might work during COVID19, Weston College is bringing a panel of experts together to talk about and answer questions on how a College experience in 2020 will work as we emerge from lockdown.
Weston College is an outstanding College, with fantastic links with employers, so if you need to retrain to gain new employment, the College has a whole host of course types (many free) that suit adult learning which can be delivered online, or socially distanced or somewhere in between. It could also be that you are thinking about taking a part time course in the evenings around taking up new hobbies or adding to your skill set to improve your job prospects and/or confidence. Whatever it is – there are certainly courses for everyone, with courses now either delivered remotely with support or with new social distanced models in place for safety or a combination of the two. We also have experts who can help with barriers such as childcare, maths & English and digital support, learning difficulties and disabilities, language barriers, as well as advice on careers, interview preparation, finance and travel bursaries – so tune in on Monday and take the first steps to creating the new you for 2020.
Hear experts outline:
- How face-to-face study and online learning will work smoothly and safely within state-of-the art facilities.
- What types of courses are available and which ones are free.
- How to enrol online and/or talk to an advisor about your personal circumstances, in order to help you remove any barriers you think you might have that are stopping you committing to a course.
- What employers are looking for, and support to retrain following redundancy or after periods of unemployment.
Panel guests include:
- Dr Paul Phillips CBE, Principal and Chief Executive
- Gary Durant Head of Adult Curriculum
- Karen Worthington Catalyst Director SEND Support
- Jon Hofgartner Director - Technology Learning & Skills
