Courses for Parents

Learn Direct courses for adults

We wish to make everyone aware of the FREE IT and employability courses that are offered within the Learn Direct centres for anyone who is unemployed and claiming Job Seekers Allowance.  To get started you can call them on 0121-569 8409 or 285 0604.  You will then be booked in for an induction and will need to take some ID with you.  The centre tutor will put you onto a short assessment which will check your current skills and identify which areas you need to work on.  You will need to attend your session weekly for a minimum of 8 hours and will be supported through your courses.  As your learning is flexible you will be able to change the days and times you attend each week and you can also do some learning at home. Please see the outdoor display cabinet or call in to see Mrs Lawrence for further details.
