These sessions are for anyone aged 16 years or over who wants to improve their reading, writing, spelling and numbers for everyday life, work or learning.

A wide range of support is available and delivered at the learner's pace within a group setting.

Examples of learning include, helping your child with homework, calculating change/interest rates on purchases, measuring for home improvements, or any other daily literacy activities.

Specific literacies support is also available to gain employment/progression within existing job, or if you are considering going into Further Education.
