People looking to learn something new or improve existing skills, change their career or meet new friends, can come along and find out what’s on offer from the council’s adult & community education service during Adult Learner’s Week (12 – 18 May).
Adult Learner’s Week gives people the chance to find out about the many different kinds of learning to help them to get a better job, try something new or help their children at school.
Cllr Steve Curran, cabinet member for education and housing at the London Borough of Hounslow, said: “There is no time in your life when it is too late to learn.
“Whether you want to pursue a hobby or improve your skills we have a range of courses available for you.
“For some people a short course in a non-academic subject may be the first experience of education since leaving school, but it’s a relaxed and enjoyable way to learn new skills and have a positive impact on their lives.”
There will be a series of events at local libraries, where people can try out different courses.
These cost just £1 and include:
Make up , Tuesday 15 May 10am – 12pm, Brentford Library
Bollywood dancing, Wednesday 16 May, 10am-12pm, Feltham Library
Social Networking, Thursday 17 May, 10am-12pm Feltham Library
Mehndi, Friday 18 May, 10am-12pm , Heston Library Cafe
Hounslow offers a large variety of courses for all abilities across the borough throughout the year, and some people are eligible for support with fees and childcare.
