A PROJECT which helps adults gain new skills has received the support of the MP for Gosport.
Caroline Dinenage visited the Out There Project at the Nimrod Centre as part of Adult Learners’ Week.
The Out There Project is a community project run by St Vincent College which gives adults in the area an opportunity to gain new skills, try different hobbies, and meet new people.
The courses are mostly free and are delivered in various venues across the Gosport area.
The aim of the project is to engage adult learners to improve social cohesion, inspire greater self-confidence, and help people lead healthier, happier lives.
Adult Learners’ Week is a national celebration of lifelong learning which takes place each year.
After the visit, Caroline said: ‘I was delighted to meet some of the learners taking part in the courses that were running at the Out There Project.
‘Adult learning is something I’m passionate about – I’ve campaigned on the issue in parliament, leading a debate in the House of Commons and secured an inquiry by the Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee in the last parliament.
‘I am extremely proud of everyone involved in the project.’
