The new Street Learning programme for April to July 2024 has been released and the booklet, detailing the courses, is now available.

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

Courses are 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, “The Street Learning courses have shown to be popular amongst residents looking to achieve a new skill, increase their social life or create better employment opportunities. If you are any age over 19, have a look at what courses are available in our district. Everyone can learn something new!”

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 Libraries, JobCentrePlus, GRHTraining, Compass Community Arts and Heathercroft.
