Life changes

If you are thinking of self-employment or getting ready for retirement we offer courses to help smooth the way through life's changes, giving you confidence to move on and to make life decisions that are right for you. Suitable for everyone making changes.

Living with lower carbon

These courses address energy use, climate change and environmental issues directly. They help people in all situations and stages of life to understand what they can realistically do at home and work to make a difference. At the same time, you can save money and make life more active and fun. Our CPD courses will help you to get on at work, and support your community activities more effectively.

We offer a range of qualification courses that will help you move on at work, particularly in Dry stone walling, Horticulture and Countryside management.
