New adult education courses begin in September

31 August 2016


Brent Start studentComputer Skills, accountancy, childcare and hairdressing are just some of the adult education courses on offer to residents through a council-run skills programme starting this September.


Classes for Brent Start, a Brent Council's skills programme, begin in September for the 2016/17 academic year and are designed to help residents gain the skills needed to take the first steps into work, change or progress their career, or learn something new.


Taking place in a variety of locations across Brent at different times, course participants can work around personal schedules and childcare plans, at a location in the borough which is convenient to them.


Cllr Roxanne Mashari, Brent Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Growth, Employment and Skills said:


"Brent Start's adult education courses continue to provide more opportunities for local people to develop skills, boost their confidence and their careers, which has been demonstrated by the numbers we have seen go on to secure work or further education after completing their course.


"Whether you are looking to gain foundation skills in English, Maths or IT or undertake a nationally accredited course, or if you are simply interested in taking up a new hobby like Yoga of French, there is something for everyone.


"The friendly, experienced and highly professional tutors make the classes something to look forward to each week, so I would encourage as many people as possible to take a look at the courses on offer this year and make your goals a reality."


Enrolments take place from 1 to 16 September at Brent Start centres, so take a look at the course brochure today to see what you could learn.
