Face-to-face adult learning returns to Bucks

Buckinghamshire Adult Learning can return to face-to-face lessons.

Adult learning has, like many others, been online based for Buckinghamshire students over the past few months. 

However, students are now starting to return to face-to-face learning now that course doors have reopened. 

Following social distancing rules, Buckinghamshire Adult Learning want to provide adult learners with additional opportunities to continue their learning and expand their skills. 

There are over 1,500 part-time courses and workshops, delivered online and from locations across Buckinghamshire. 

They range from one-day to one year courses and subjects include:

  • English, ESOL and maths
  • IT
  • employability
  • sign language
  • pilates
  • practical gardening
  • creative writing
  • watercolour painting

Anita Cranmer, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, commented:

"I am delighted that face-to-face learning for adults has now restarted in the county. While adult learning has continued during the lockdown through the use of online teaching, there are clearly many additional benefits of teaching in a face-to-face setting. These include, students having fewer distractions, the ability to discuss and learn from other students, and opportunities to practice new skills.

"I am also very pleased that Buckinghamshire Adult Learning's summer programme is now live on their website. I would encourage people to take a look at the wide range of courses on offer - and to secure their place now for any courses that will support them or take their interest."
