The new Street Learning programme for January to March 2024 has been released and the booklet is now available.

Wealden and Eastbourne residents, aged 19 and above, can attend a range of academic, wellbeing, and practical courses.

Courses are available free of charge and designed to help residents boost their confidence, employment opportunities, develop existing skills, learn something new or meet new people.

The courses are delivered in community venues located throughout the district including Uckfield, Heathfield, Hailsham, and Crowborough. Some courses are also available online.

Councillor Paul Coleshill, Alliance for Wealden (Liberal Democrat), and lead councillor for Climate Change and Economy, said, “Street Learning courses are available to residents aged 19 and over to boost employment opportunities and career development. There are many different courses to choose from in a variety of locations and ways that people can choose to learn. The courses on offer aren’t just for academic education, some courses are to encourage social interaction and for people looking to build a new skill.”

Street Learning is a project supported by Wealden District Council in partnership with ACRES (Adult College for Rural East Sussex), East Sussex College, East Sussex Country Council Library, Job Centre Plus, GRH Training, Compass Community Arts and Heathercroft.
