Look out Ellesmere!

Over the next few weeks, people living in the Ellesmere area can expect a visit from teams of Community Learning Assistants – part of the Community Learning Campaign team who are working hard to encourage local people back into learning.

More than 150 local people are already in touch with the Community Learning Campaign workers, who are helping them find out about adult learning courses, especially courses that are due to start after the summer holidays.

The team has been helping people fill in enrolment forms, going with them to sign up for courses and generally helping them with any difficulties that are stopping them getting back into learning. The team has also been responding to local demand and getting some new courses started in the area. The first one, a short Playwork Course run by the Out of School Network attracted fifteen participants, most of them local.

A major focus so far has been the Carwood area where a new community meeting room will soon be opened. The team has been out and about on the estate, finding out from local people about what they’d like to see on offer in the new community room.  The results of the survey will be reported to the local tenants and residents association, ASTRA, and we hope to see some new and exciting courses starting in the area very soon.
