Adult learners open day

31 August, 2021 12:29 pm

An open day focused on adult learners will be held at Keighley College this September.

The event takes place at the Bradford Road campus on Thursday 2 September and offers visitors a chance to look around and find out about the variety of courses on offer.

The day will consist of two slots, at 10am and then at 2pm, and also include some ‘taster sessions’ with the Skills Support Hub.

Expert help and taster sessions

The hub is made up of an expert team at the college who work with partners including Bradford Council, SkillsHouse, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and local employers to see how they can best meet the needs of each individual.

During the Keighley College adult learner open day,  visitors will find out how to improve their job searches and CVs to boost their career prospects.

Guidance will also be available on the range of adult courses that are on offer and how they can help to enhance current skills or kickstart a new, or change in, career.

And representatives from the local DWP’s Youth Hub, which works with partner organisations to help 18 to 24 year olds gain employment, will be there to help too.

Places on the open day can be booked here.

Celebrating adult learning

The event is part of Keighley College’s support for the Festival of Learning, a national campaign to promote and celebrate the value of adult learning.
