Councillor Stephen Reid, executive member for education and skills, said: '˜Training in the most vital skills, such as literacy and digital technology, should be accessible to all who need it.

'˜Providing free learning to those who may find it more difficult to access courses, in venues easy to travel to, helps people to aim higher and engage more with the community around them.'
