Find out how Learning could be the key to a New You in ’22

Cumbria County Council’s Adult Learning service is sending a New Year’s invitation to find out what learning could do for you in 2022.

The online Q&A sessions are part of Adult Learning’s New You in ’22 campaign - to help everyone start the new year on a path to achieve their goals.

For many of us, the New Year is a time of reflection and often, new aspirations - be it career, family or wellbeing.  The Adult Learning service offers a range of courses - many of which are completely free - across a broad curriculum to support the people of Cumbria to achieve their goals. 

The online Q&A sessions are an opportunity to find out more about the courses that are right for you - from the comfort of your home. 

In Covid-uncertain times, there are over 80 courses delivered in real-time online, offering a safe and flexible way to learn.

For those starting the new year looking for a new job, there are free courses including ‘Create Your CV’ and ‘Interview Preparation’.  Looking for a new career path and new qualifications?  Courses include ‘Award in Environmental Sustainability’.

Health & Wellbeing will be a priority for many in the New Year.  There are free courses in mindfulness, resilience, positive thinking and for those who love the great outdoors - even navigation skills for the hills.

Ever wanted to learn a new language?  Not only are the major European languages covered, but there are also courses in Japanese and Russian.

With over 250 courses available now, these are just a taster of the range on offer.  The Q&A sessions are a great way to find out more.

Deborah Earl, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Community Services said:

“There’s no doubt that 2021 has been another tough year for Cumbria.  As the year draws to a close, we all think about new beginnings and making positive changes to our lives.  Learning is the key to taking charge of achieving our goals. 

“Our Adult Learning service offers a fantastic range of courses with incredibly experienced tutors.  There’s something for everyone.  Most of our courses are completely free and we’re offering more courses online than ever.

I’d really encourage everyone with aspirations for the New Year to join one of the online Q&A sessions to find out what learning can do for you.”
