Community school offers free adult learning week

AN ACADEMY trust will be hosting a range of courses to help adults find employment and get the job of their dreams.

The trust, run through Priory Community School, will offer courses starting on Monday and participants will not have to pay a penny.

Organiser Chantelle Ford said: “I know what it is like myself. I’m 26 with a young child and am juggling work as well as starting an evening course for a English literature degree. In this economic climate it is so important to keep learning new skills.”

The courses are available to anyone over the age of 16 and aim to help people in Weston to develop skills and the confidence to tackle the job market. Courses on offer include psychology, French, cookery, presentation skills and ICT for business skills, Japanese, Italian and more.

If the trial is successful, Priory hope to expand the adult learning to be a regularly part of their service to the community all year round. To book a course call Chantelle on 01934 511411 or email
