Be streetwise and get learning

Media Release : 29 August 2018

How useful are your English and Maths skills? Do you need more confidence to achieve your personal goals? Or perhaps you fancy exploring your creative side?

Street learning autumn programme 2018

Street Learning can help with all this and more. Courses run between September and December. Best of all it’s completely free to anyone aged 19 or over and living in Wealden and Eastbourne.

“Year on year, the Street Learning programme continues to offer an array of exciting training opportunities across a diverse range of subjects,” said Councillor Roy Galley, Cabinet member for Economic Development. “There are some excellent courses for job seekers or those looking to improve their existing skillset. For those just wanting to get out, socialise and take up a new hobby, there are many free creative courses to take advantage of.” 

Some of the courses on offer this year include:

• Functional skills qualification courses (English and Maths).

• Be Confident.

• Keeping Your Child Safe Online.
