“Taking part in courses, I managed to get funding to do my welding certificate.”

“Using the skills I have learned, I can now teach others and go on to do other things.”

“Adult Learning turned my life around 360 degrees.”

“I can’t wait to do more courses and learn more.”

“It’s good that courses are kept local.”
