Build a career with our adult community education service

6 February 2018

Residents interested in learning construction skills are being invited to sign up to a range of courses with our Adult Community Education Service.


Bookings are now being taken for bricklaying for beginners and level one certificate in construction occupations which both start on Thursday 15 February 2018.

We're also offering diplomas in plastering and bricklaying and certificates in plumbing at our Training and Skills for Construction Centre in Holmewood, near Clay Cross and the Toolbox Centre in Gamesley, near Glossop, which residents can sign up to at any time throughout the year.

There are hundreds of daytime and evening courses and activities on offer through our Adult Community Education Service providing people with the chance to study for new qualifications in a range of subjects, improve their employment opportunities or explore new hobbies and interests.

Our Cabinet Member for Young People Councillor Alex Dale said:

"If you or someone you know is interested in learning a construction trade we have lots of courses on offer for all skill levels.

"Our Adult Community Education Service also offers a wide range of courses including maths, English, CV writing, interview skills, teacher training, computing and languages.

"There's something for everyone so why not challenge yourself and see where learning something new can take you."

Use our adult education course listings to find out what courses are available or use the 'What's on' leaflets at adult community education centres, libraries and other locations around the county.

Gift vouchers are available in denominations of £5, £10, £20 and £50 which can be put towards the cost of courses.

Classes are held at our adult community education centres as well as at around 80 community venues.

Residents without internet access can sign up using a computer at any of our libraries or call in at their local adult community education centre to book a place.
