Make time for quality time with an adult learning course

4 December 2017

The new ACL adult learning course guide is packed full of intriguing and exciting courses and is set to land on doormats across Essex in the new few weeks.

With courses set to start in the New Year an ACL course is the perfect Christmas gift for the person who has everything, or an excuse for some quality “you time” to perfect a new skill in the New Year. 

From floristry to photography; Spanish to spray tan application; sewing to sugar craft; aromatherapy to art classes, there are hundreds of opportunities to learn a new hobby, have a go at being creative and stimulate mind and body.

Essex County Councillor Ray Gooding, Cabinet Member for Education said: “The variety of courses on offer from ACL is fantastic. I’m thrilled we can offer residents a chance to have a go at so many creative industries and hopefully ignite new artistic passions across the county.” 

With venues all across Essex and a discount of 10% off non accredited courses with production of a valid Essex Library Card it has never been easier to try something new.
