New English and maths courses will begin running at Bath College’s Somer Valley Campus in Radstock next month.
Bath College’s Adult Community Learning (ACL) team is planning a range of group classes suitable for learners at various levels.
To make sure people join the best group for them, the team is holding assessment sessions on January 16 and January 23rd.
Bath College runs a well-established English and maths programme, offering over 10 different classes at the Twerton Learning Centre in Bath.
This will be the first time the college has run English and maths classes in Radstock and course dates will depend on the level of interest received.
Courses run by the ACL team are aimed at people not in education or employment who want to learn in a fun and relaxed environment.
Studying English and maths can help learners gain confidence, improve their CV and support their children at school.
Paul Grant, from Bath, has been attending English and maths lessons at the Twerton Learning Centre for two years.
He said: “You’ve got to get your confidence back to sit in a classroom. It’s not scary, but you can have your doubts.
“I would say give it a go. I’ve found the teachers at Bath College to be friendly and bubbly, you can have a proper chat with them.
“Employers want to see what you’ve been doing and this makes employers look at you in a different way.”
Learners can study English and maths, gaining a qualification and a certificate, from entry level 1, 2 and 3 to level 1 and level 2.
Assessment sessions will run from 10am to 1pm on January 16th and January 23rd. To book call Lynsey Parsons on (01225) 328822 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
