What course to take?
Looking to take up a new hobby or enrolling on a fun course to acquire a new skill? Adult learning courses can be a great way of doing just that! With a variety of fun and friendly courses available at various points throughout the week, you should be able to find a course to suit you.
 
On a course, you’ll likely learn the basic skills of the subject of your choice in a relaxed environment. Although it’s a good idea to pick a college or centre close to where you work or study, as you’re unlikely to want to travel a long distance after a tiring day or week, finding the course you’re interested in is just as important. If that course is only available out of town, a weekend class is going to be better suited to you to give you as much time as possible to travel to where it’s based. 
 
Alternatively, there are lots of  fun courses available online for you to complete as you wish. While they're great teaching you a new skill, you may find that you miss out on the social side of what makes a course so enjoyable. 
 
There are literally thousands of course options available to you, but choosing what course you want to take depends on what you want to get out of it. If it is to gain skills to showcase on your CV to help you stand out from the crowd, then a course in a language or IT (computing for you technophobes!) may be best. You may want to study a subject that’s going to help you with home life, in which case a gardening course or sessions in cooking your partner’s favourite food would suit. With courses ranging from animation to yoga, the options really are endless and fun!
