Community Learning update

An update from Community Learning in response to Covid-19.

Community Learning is working hard to support tutors and learners on our existing courses to maintain engagement through a variety of online systems such as google classroom. We are also investigating the best and safest ways to use a variety of other online resources to ensure we remain flexible in our approach and continue to make it as easy as possible for teaching and learning to happen.

We understand that families are still adjusting to the new situation, including issues around caring responsibilities, home schooling, shopping and access to affordable food.  Therefore, we are keeping in contact with learners to see how they are and supporting them to access online resources/activities.  We are putting useful resources on our website, including a sample timetable for educating at home and free access to a wide variety of English and maths resources to support Functional skills.

We are also looking ahead to developing new courses which will support adults and families at this difficult time.  For example, in the Summer term we will be offering a family learning Arts and Crafts course which will use materials and items from your recycling boxes.

We are also exploring putting some of our other courses online, including, Introduction to Office Skills/Business Admin, first aid, food hygiene, Roof Over My Head, parenting support, resilience and coping strategies, fun with phonics, cooking together, maths through stories, ESOL for Health,  and an employability/CV course for when people are able to get back to work.

So, please continue to look out for our course flyers through ways2work, your local area networks and our website.
