Or maybe you want to improve your health and wellbeing, start volunteering, set up your own business or just meet new people?

Whatever your situation, the Stockton Learning and Skills Service is offering an exciting choice of courses in January 2022, both classroom-based and online, that could help change your life for the better.

From English, maths and IT skills, to arts and crafts, apprenticeships and teacher training, there really is something for everyone and many of the Learning for Work and Learning for Life courses are completely free.

Councillor Nigel Cooke, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing, said: “January is the time for a fresh start for many, so follow through with those New Year’s Resolutions to change your life and sign up for one of our many courses available.

“We have worked hard to ensure that our learning venues are a safe environment to learn in and with a greater number of courses for 2022 we are excited to open our centres to even more learners.

“Due to the success of our innovative approach to online study during lockdown we have also increased the range of our online and distance learning offer so people can study in a place and time convenient for them.”

Enrolling or applying for courses online is quick, secure and easy. Find out more by visiting www.slss.ac.uk where you can also download the new January course guide or call the Stockton Learning and Skills Service on 01642 527904.
