Summer adult education courses are moving online

People across the High Peak and throughout Derbyshire are being encouraged to sign up to free online courses this summer. 

The courses, provided by Derbyshire County Council, include: 

  • Environmental awareness
  • Interview skills
  • Sign language
  • Spanish
  • Dealing with uncertainty and stress
  • Art and crafts

Some courses can be done online at a pace that suits you, while other courses will be delivered remotely using Zoom where learners will be part of a live class with a tutor and fellow learners.

All you need is a laptop, tablet or smart phone with internet access.

Learners will be provided with a list of materials or equipment they need for each session. 

Due to the current coronavirus crisis, adult education community centres are unable to open and the council say it will be issuing further guidance on when facilities will re-open once it is safe to do so in line with government guidance.

Residents can find out more and register their interest or book by visiting http://derbyshireadulteducation.eventbrite.com

Cllr Alex Dale, DCC's Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: "Our adult community education service is committed to providing quality learning for Derbyshire residents for skills, leisure and fun.

"Staff have been working hard to keep our service running during the current coronavirus crisis and provide opportunities for residents despite the barriers we all face.

"Through online learning our learners have access to a range of courses and a high quality and safe learning experience during this period of uncertainty.

"If you’re looking to pick up a new hobby or learn a new skill whilst spending more time at home this summer, we have something for you. Spaces on our courses are limited so make sure you sign up soon to guarantee a place."
