It’s never too late!

You might be way past school-leaving age – but it’s never too late to learn. That’s the message from the Community Learning Campaign which helped to organise a series of events in Burngreave as part of Adult Learner’s Week during May.

The events – organised by members of the Burngreave Learning Provider’s Group in association with the Burngreave Community Learning Campaign – ranged from IT classes and job information sessions through to women’s joinery and Arabic and Somali dancing. The taster events were organised with funding provided by Sheffield City Council’s Adult and Community Learning Service, the Workers’ Educational Association and Learning Pays.

Community Learning Campaign Manager Sheena Clarke said the week had shown just how great the demand for learning in Burngreave is:

“Lots of people of all ages and from a wide range of backgrounds took this opportunity to learn something new – without having to leave Burngreave to do it. We were delighted that many of the events proved popular and will be looking to attract new learning programmes to Burngreave based on what we have learned about people’s needs and the type of courses they would like to do.”

If you live in Burngreave and would like to return to learn, why not contact the Community Learning Campaign to find out about opportunities on offer. Ring them on 292 3160 or email
