A new adult learning programme has been launched in Liverpool, Getintothis’ Lewis Ridley with the news as Milk Teeth and Honey Lung announce tour gigs in the city.
The University of Liverpool has announced a new Continuing Education programme, giving adults the opportunity to study over 200 different courses with an emphasis on lifelong learning.
The CE programme has traditionally been a one-stop shop for affordable, flexible learning, whether you want to gain new skills or simply enjoy learning. The University has been providing CE courses for the community since 1889, and in 2018-19 roughly 2000 adult learners took a CE course during the year.
As Academic Director Dr Glenn Godenho says: “our courses provide access to important University research and facilities without the need to commit long term. Our recent series of free talks in collaboration with the Workers Educational Association (WEA) and Wellcome Trust at the Central Library (William Brown Street) allowed us to take our cutting-edge public health research to our local community.”
“Topics like living better with dementia and why drugs don’t work (due to antimicrobial resistance) provoked interesting group discussion and brought new perspective to issues that almost all of us will have some experience of in our lifetimes.”
“We hope to take this initiative to more of our communities, in accessible locations, so that they are available to everyone”.
