New Year, new skills in 2015 with Tees Achieve

Tuesday, January 6, 2015

Are you looking to learn new skills or build on existing ones in 2015? Or thought about getting into a new hobby this year?

Tees Achieve, Stockton Council’s Adult Education Service, offers a wide variety of learning and training opportunities to residents across the Borough.

Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Services and Health, Councillor Jim Beall, said: “The start of a year is often a time when people think about getting involved with something new.

“The range of courses on offer means there really is something for everyone to try their hand at, be it learning a completely new skill or brushing up on an old pastime.

“The courses are affordable and represent good value for money.

“Tees Achieve is a superb resource available to all residents of the Stockton Borough and one that I would urge people to make the most of in 2015.”

A range of courses from photography to gardening, cookery to computing, are all open for enrolment.

Are you hoping to finally get round to fixing those odd jobs around your home? A term of basic DIY will give you the confidence to tackle them and save money in the long run.

Wanting to prepare your garden for the spring season? Tees Achieve is hosting two workshops to help plant the seeds of a wealth of gardening knowledge which could help you grow your own vegetables and save money.

Everybody loves a bargain in the sales and brushing up on your computing skills could get you online and accessing the latest deals and exclusive buys.

We all know money can be in short supply after the festive period but help is at hand to show you how to cook tasty meals for less!

The ‘Tasty Teas for Less Dough’ workshop will show you how to use healthy but inexpensive ingredients to make delicious dishes.

Those on lower incomes may also be eligible for fee exemptions or reductions.
