Learn a new skill or find a new interest with hundreds of online courses to choose from

Cumbria County Council’s Community Learning and Skills service is launching a new programme of online courses from Monday 4 May. With more than 150 adult learning courses available online there’s bound to be a course that will spark your creativity!

We have courses to help you feel less isolated during the current lockdown period, courses that will help you maintain healthy physical and mental health, as well as a range of courses to open up your creative side - learn a new language or expand your digital skills to help you keep in touch with family and friends, or to support your professional work.

We are also excited to offer some additional support for home schooling parents with a wide range of Family Learning courses up to Key Stage 2.

Whatever you choose to do, you’ll find our tutors are supportive and encouraging, and our classes are a great way to increase your confidence and skills

A large number of classes will be offered for free, with others starting at only £2.50 per hour.

Cllr Deborah Earl, Cabinet Member for Local Communities, said:

“The council’s online adult learning courses cater for all sorts of different subjects, skills and interests, and anyone can access them!

“So whether you’re looking to learn a new skill, improve your knowledge on a particular subject, enhance your job prospects or simply to develop a new interest - we are confident that you’ll find something that’s right for you.”

More information about the service is available online at www.cumbria.gov.uk/learningandskills  - where you can browse and choose the courses you’re interested in. You can also follow the service on Facebook (@CumbriaLearning), Instagram (@cumbrialearning) and Twitter (@CumbriaLearning) to keep up to date with the latest opportunities.
