Learning is good for you

Learning as an adult is fun and rewarding but it can also have other advantages. Learners tell us that they have improved their health, relationships, confidence and independence. We call this the Wider Impact (WI) of learning.

Our tutors plan your course to make sure you’ll get the greatest possible benefit from your learning.

For example you might take a cookery course and feel that you can now cook healthy meals for yourself and so you feel more independent. Or you may take a painting course and find this is relaxing which over the term has helped your sense of wellbeing.
