Put a Spring in your Step at Shipley College

A leading Yorkshire college is helping to keep adults learning by developing hobby skills and improving employment prospects after a series of cuts to the sector. Shipley College has launched its latest range of spring courses for adult learners, including qualifications to suit all levels and ages. The range of courses includes Digital Photography for Weddings, Reflexology, Reiki, Modern Languages, Website Design, Painting and Drawing – and the College says all forms of adult learning are a great way to enhance quality of life and improve a CV. Nav Chohan, Principal of Shipley College, said: “At the college we are aiming to provide adults with access to learning despite the recession and two years of cuts. These courses can help people develop a hobby or interest, improve employability and give people the chance to save money by doing some DIY for their wedding, or by learning how to cook on a budget. “The IT lessons are extremely valuable to those who aren’t experienced in using the internet, and can open up new ways of doing things like online shopping. “It is very important for us to offer consistent support to adults in the Yorkshire community who wish to learn new skills to improve their chances of employment, or to help them in their everyday life.” To find out more about Shipley College and the part-time spring courses, visit www.shipley.ac.uk or call 01274 327222. The full programme of part-time leisure and skills based courses will be available in June 2011.
