Learning for leisure
If you have been out of learning for a long time you might like to get back into learning with a course that meets a personal interest and is less focused on a qualification.
There are leisure-related courses where you can explore a variety of topics such as local history, crafts, photography, etc.
Learning like this gives you the chance to find out what you enjoy, meet new people and build up your confidence so that you take the next step in learning.
Leisure courses take place in colleges, adult learning centres, libraries and lots of other places. They are a great way to help you move on in life and work.
You can find out more about this type of learning by contacting your local college or search for a course on the National Careers Service website.
Check out the costs of the course you want to do and also the time commitment. If you are on benefits check what the implications may be of you attending the course, also whether you might be entitled to financial support on the course.
