The ACL Essex new course guide is out and Essex residents can now find out more about the exciting range of courses on offer and enrol. Each course guide is packed full of a mix of creative, accredited and general interest courses all with the aim of helping learners to develop new interests, qualifications and careers.
New for this year is the opportunity to develop artisan skills in Silversmithing and Woodwork at our new Basildon Craft Studios. ACL courses range from GCSE English and Maths to introduction to web design or coding; cookery skills to pottery classes; Spanish, Italian or Chinese Mandarin to photography and yoga.
As well as a range of apprenticeships available across the county ACL offers work based qualifications in fields such as Accountancy, Law, Health and Social Care, and Management supporting Essex businesses by providing professional qualifications for employees.
Essex County Councillor Ray Gooding, Cabinet Member for Education said: “By distributing our course guide to 98 per cent of Essex households we can hopefully reach people who are keen to develop new interests, qualifications and careers.
Adult learning courses take place at locations across the county and as well as a wide variety of courses on offer , there’s a mix of course times, start dates and days of the week to make the courses accessible for as many people as possible.”
