Hampshire County Council to provide education courses for adults
THOUSANDS of adults will be able to attend courses to improve their literacy, maths andÂ IT skills.
Hampshire County Council has allocated Â£1.3mÂ to help improve quality of life and employability among specific target groupsÂ by providing the free learning courses. They will be held in areas across the county including schools, parish halls and libraries.
Councillor Stephen Reid, executive member for education andÂ skills,Â 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 higherÂ and engage more with the community around them.'
