Written by Anonymous on 11th June 2019

Chichester College is offering people the chance to learn something new and experience unique opportunities with a series of free talks in June.

Monday 24 June marks the start of a series of sessions arranged as part of the Festival of Learning, a national celebration of lifelong learning organised by the Learning and Work Institute.

The aim of the Festival of Learning is to encourage local communities to take part in activities that raise awareness of the wide range of opportunities and resources available for adults looking to continue, or resume, their education.

The free talks at the college cover a wide range of inspiring subjects, designed to help visitors to learn new skills and techniques that they can apply to their personal and professional lives. These include using social media in business, emotional health & wellbeing, business advice and holistic self-care

Helen Loftus, Vice Principal at Chichester College, said: “We are very excited to be a part of the Festival of Learning again this year.

“Adult learning is an important part of what we do and we look forward to opening our doors to anyone who is interested in experiencing new opportunities and helping them to kick-start their learning journey.”

Stephen Evans, CEO of Learning and Work Institute, added: “The Festival of Learning helps people to learn and to discover the wide range of opportunities there are to gain new skills, expand their abilities and transform their lives.

“I hope that people take advantage of this exciting event at Chichester College and recognise that you’re never too old to learn.”
