A NEW look adult learning has been unveiled in the borough.
North Tyneside Council’s Adult Learning Alliance has teamed up with TyneMet College to offer more part time courses.
A new joint prospectus is being delivered to every borough household, aiming to encourage more adults to think about studying or learning a new skill.
Mayor Linda Arkley said: “Learning has the power to transform people’s lives, by unlocking their potential and raising their aspirations.
“As the two principal providers of adult learning in North Tyneside, we are working together to ensure that the local community can access information on the broadest range of learning opportunities, in one place.”
Jon Vincent, principal and chief executive of TyneMet College, added: “We are extremely proud of our new joint prospectus.
“It is the culmination of a great deal of work to ensure that our joint offer provides great value for money, the opportunity to learn anywhere in the borough and high quality courses.”
The new, 50-page brochure details part-time adult learning programmes offered from September 2012.
Courses available cover a diverse range of subject areas, delivered from 37 different venues across the borough.
The brochure can be downloaded from www.northtyneside.gov.uk/ala or www.tynemet.ac.uk/adult-learning
