Term time means learn time

Monday, April 13, 2015


From getting to grips with new technology to practicing the perfect photo, Stockton Council’s Learning and Skills service has a range of courses with something available for everyone.

As the final term of the academic year approaches, residents are being encouraged to revisit the classroom to take on a new skill or discover an enjoyable pastime.

Learners of all ages can expect a welcoming environment in which to develop their skills under the supportive eye of a team of experienced tutors.

ICT skills, photography, foreign languages, family history and basic DIY are just a small selection of the courses available for enrolment now.

Chris McElvaney, Learning Improvement Team Leader, said: “There really is a course for everyone on offer here.

“We are renowned for the variety of our courses and all learners, either complete beginners or those with experience, will find something that appeals to them.

“Our team of tutors are highly knowledgeable on their topics and they bring a wealth of experience to bring great benefit to learners.”
