Devon Adult and Community Learning has a wide range of new and exciting courses across the county, starting in September, where you can expand your knowledge or learn a new skill.

There are many ‘Try it Out’ sessions to help you choose the best course for you and you can join a beginners’ class or progress to a higher level to extend your existing skills and knowledge.

The course brochure lists the range of courses on offer, where you can:

 Unleash your creativity with an arts and crafts course;

 Explore computing for absolute beginners with access to additional modules in online shopping, online banking and finding a job online;

 Select something from the general interest programme including counselling, creative writing, and range of health and well-being subjects;

 Learn or improve on language courses such as Spanish, French, Italian or even British sign language;

 If English is not your first language, there are courses designed to improve your skills;

 Whether you want to help your children with their homework, plug that gap in your CV or just brush up your skills there are free short and long courses designed to help you with your English and maths skills. These classes are small and friendly, with tutors experienced in helping adult learners develop their skills and confidence and there are opportunities to obtain a qualification to improve your job prospects. You may like to gain a GCSE in English or maths.

The scheme also offers training for employment, with tailor-made courses for employers in subjects such as First Aid at Work, Paediatric First Aid, Health & Safety, Risk Assessment, Food Safety in Catering, English for Migrant Workers and a range of vocational qualifications.

All courses are delivered by experienced, qualified tutors, who will help you realise your full potential and a free impartial advice service is available to help you discuss your needs.
