Learning changes lives – and not just young lives either.
Education can be amazing whatever your age, and you’re never too old to take on a new challenge.
Tomorrow is the start of the annual showcase for such opportunities, Adult Learners’ Week, and we feature some of the many options available in this area today in a five-page special feature.
It’s the ideal time to look at the choices available before enrolling for a course to start in September.
But why take the plunge?
Returning to learning is a daunting prospect for some, especially if your memories of school days are not exactly positive.
Our advice is to go for it – you never know where those tentative first steps might lead.
Perhaps you feel you just didn’t do yourself justice at school, that you could have done so much better – well, it’s not too late to do something about that.
Maybe you’re stuck in a career rut, bored and frustrated with your lot. A new qualification could change everything.
And don’t forget the thrill of tackling something completely new – you’re keeping the old grey matter buzzing and bright.
There are few better feelings!
