    Discover part-time courses with Oxfordshire Adult Learning in 2019!

    Put New Year resolutions to the side and forget about “new you” – why not try something different in your spare time that you really want to do?

    Oxfordshire Adult Learning (OAL) is dedicated to providing lifelong learning across the county, having provided for thousands of students of all ages over the years.

    Ever wondered what it would be like to be able to create floral masterpieces? To learn the basics of a language before jetting off on holiday? Maybe you’d just like to unwind with a yoga class local to you…

    From upcycling old furniture to Italian bread making, to say there’s something for everyone may be a bit of a cliché but it’s certainly no exaggeration! It has a wider variety of subject areas than ever before, including new specialist classes such as genealogy and astrology, and where courses become very popular, it aims to put on more classes to help meet the demand.

    Classes are designed with modern day routines in mind, with many taking place weekly in the evenings to avoid clashes with work and the school run.

    OAL is also working within local communities to help them reengage with learning, even receiving industry recognition for its work in raising social mobility and widening participation. Such programmes include:

    Oxfordshire Online, a partnership with Oxfordshire Libraries to help local residents improve their digital and online skills
    A Carer’s Project, in partnership with Action for Carers Oxfordshire, is exclusively for adult carers who are looking after someone, but want to access free practical sessions that support their development
    • Would you like to make a difference in your community? There are plenty of volunteering opportunities that OAL can help you with, plus lots of opportunities for training
    • OAL is also part of the Oxfordshire Learning Network, the county’s Community Learning Trust that funds different projects from a range of providers and charities.

    Interested in improving your English language or maths skills, or maybe both? Making sure you have the right GCSEs or level of English language skills is important for work and in life. With OAL, you can enrol on a short course and it could even be free.

    Whatever you are looking to do, whatever skills you want to improve, Oxfordshire Adult Learning can help make it a reality! Visit the homepage today and browse the extensive opportunities available, or call 01235 555 585 to get more information.
