Get involved and learn new skills
Adult Learners week is coming to South Ayrshire 19-25 May so get ready for a feast of learning activities.
This national campaign is a reminder that we are never too old to learn and South Ayrshire Council is hoping that even more adults take this opportunity to learn new skills.
From job searches and cookery courses to art classes and English language workshops, there's something for everyone. New parents will appreciate the PEEP parenting programmes which encourage parents and children to learn together and there are even infant massage courses.
Don't miss the Living Life to the full course in Girvan or the Job Match Group taking place at Lochside Community Centre in Ayr. There are also IT courses for beginners as well as tips and tricks on how to protect against scammers.
Councillor William Grant, Lifelong Learning Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council said: "The Council wants to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to improve their lives through learning. These activities are an opportunity to learn new skills but they can also help with social isolation which can be an issue as we get older.
"I would encourage people to check the website and pick an activity that's right for them; it really could change their lives."
