Nearly 20% of panel members said they had taken part in adult learning in Calderdale in the last five years. The type of learning that was undertaken was many and varied across the areas of the borough, from cake decorating to yoga, various levels of computer skills to sign language, to name but a few.
When asked what was the purpose in taking up a learning experience the responses were also diverse and informative, including:
- to improve my skills
- career development
- hobby, enjoyment
- meet people and make friends
- to give me more confidence
- get a qualification.
Over 20% of panel members said they would like to share their learning story in a promotional publication for adult learning – we will shortly be in touch with some of these volunteers to learn more of their learning experience.
