University journey can start with Learn Telford Access course

The two and a half day course, from June 28-30 at Southwater One, Telford, will highlight the council’s Learn Telford Access to Higher Education programmes.

Anyone interested in progressing to Higher Education can find out how the Access courses can provide the perfect route to universities up and down the UK and how HE qualifications can also help them to secure a future career.

Free lunches are provided at the event and limited crèche places are also available.

Learn Telford is a Telford & Wrekin Council programme which aims to provide high quality learning opportunities for people living in the borough.

It encourages people across different communities to experience the joy of learning and take advantage of the wider benefits that participation in learning brings, such as increased confidence, reduced social isolation and improved wellbeing.

The service also aims to contribute to improving the skills and employment levels of the borough by supporting adults who are low skilled or unemployed.

Councillor Eileen Callear (Lab), Telford & Wrekin Council’s Cabinet Member for Visitor Economy, Employment and Skills said: “Learn Telford provides a wide range of learning opportunities for local people, helping them to access university and different employment sectors as well as giving them valuable skills and qualifications.

“Our Access to Higher Education programmes are a fantastic part of the Learn Telford package and a great stepping stone to university.

“This short course will help people to find out all they need to know about the Access programmes as they consider their next steps.”
