Adult Learners’ Week (18-24 May) is the UK’s largest annual festival of learning, inspiring thousands of people each year to discover how learning can change their lives. Our open day on Wednesday, 22nd May from 2-7 p.m. is at our Training Centre on Widemarsh Street.
The event will welcome all learners – from school leavers all the way through working life. Hoople offer a wide range of over 200 courses across a variety of disciplines. There will be something for everyone, no matter what stage of their career. School leavers may be interested in speaking with tutors from our 4U and Foundation Learning programmes, and learning about courses to help get prepared for work in business administration, health and social care, retail and customer service, construction, hospitality and beauty therapy. Others may be interested in learning about on-the-job training opportunities, such as Sector Based Work Academies or Apprenticeship opportunities, in business and administration, customer service, health and social care. We’re also running a CV workshop to help job seekers make a great first impression. Those already employed can discover how they can improve their skills across a variety of topics, including leadership and management, IT skills or freshen up on some workplace basics such as first aid, health and safety and moving and handling.
The event will include interactive sessions throughout, including a demonstration of SimMan, the latest technology in patient simulators, moving and handling hoists, and a tour of the Foundation Learning facilities.
Anyone is welcome to drop in for tea and cake and see what we have on offer. For more information, contact the Training Centre on 01432 845739.
