- A taster session, which may lead those interested on to another course/programme of learning/study
- Help people engage confidently in life/work/back into society
- Developing employability and entry to or returning to work
- Engage parents/guardians in their children’s education
Awards will be given on a first come, first served basis until this year’s funds are depleted. Ideal for groups and organisations who provide learning services including health and wellbeing sessions, art and crafts, money management etc.
