Looking for your next Adult Learning course?
From free courses in Maths and English, vocational courses to help you get the job that you want or more specialised courses that support people with special educational needs or disabilities, Durham County Council’s Adult Learning and Skills Service is the place to go.
Courses are available in person or online – through distance learning or through a virtual classroom. Previous learner, Michelle Young, signed up with the Adult Learning and Skills Service after becoming unemployed, and was looking for courses to boost her confidence as well as her skills.
“I visited the job centre to ask if I could get some help with my CV, they mentioned the Adult Learning and Skills Service courses and I took it from there. I have found the computer courses really useful. I would definitely like to do another course.”
Whether you are just starting out, are looking to take the next step in your career or just want to learn something new there is a course for you.
The autumn courses are available to book now with more new classroom-based courses available across the county, including at Spennymoor, Crook, Seaham and Newton Aycliffe, as well as a range of distance learning options.
The new classroom based ‘Get Ready to Learn Online’ course has everything you will need to start your online learning journey, including how to download, edit, save and organise files. Maybe you fancy working in adult social care – their Care Academy offers over 30 courses to get you the skills you need, whatever your level.
