Have a Go at Keighley College

20 October, 2021 2:58 pm

Are you looking to develop a skill and learn something new? 

This year, we’re inviting adults aged 19 and over to come into college to discover our range of subjects, as part of the Festival of Learning.

Festival of Learning

The Festival of Learning is a national campaign which celebrates lifelong learning for adults. 

The festival’s mission is to demonstrate the benefits of adult learning and raise awareness across the country. Some of the key reasons to engage in adult learning include:

  • Wellbeing: Wellbeing is at the heart of adult learning, enabling learners to meet new people and improve self-esteem.
  • Flexibility: Adult education can be a flexible service that accommodates other commitments, such as families and jobs.
  • Opportunities: There are adult learner providers across the district that can offer personalised and specialised learning experiences.
  • Confidence: Lifelong learning enriches the lives of learners, providing them with better opportunities and the ability to adapt to unexpected changes.

Take part in our Have a Go Fortnight

If you’re interested in adult learning, but aren’t sure which course is for you, why not come down to college and get a taste of our diverse curriculum areas?

Our Have a Go Fortnight will be running from 1 to 12 November at Keighley College.

Over these two weeks, we’re inviting all adults across the region to learn something new, enhance employability and improve wellbeing through our bespoke adult taster sessions.
