 New course !

Women's Lives.  30 April - 31 July (wednesday evenings)

Women’s Lives is a course specifically designed for women who have been away from learning for some time but would now like to take up new learning opportunities. It looks at issues of interest to women and draws on your own experiences at work and at home. When doing this it will develop your skills and give you greater confidence in:

  • Writing;
  • Investigating and research;
  • Analysing and problem solving.

You will join a regular study group that meets once a week in the evening with a woman tutor who will help and advise you and give you feedback. There will be 10 weekly sessions that are informal and friendly and also the option of a weekend school or day school. Upon completion you will receive nationally recognised Adult Learning Credits. Women’s lives participants often go on to do further women’s courses with UNISON.

INFORMATION SESSION on Tuesday 9th April at Livery Street
