Westminster Adult Education Service celebrates Adult Learners Week 2009.

Come and join us at Westminster Adult Education Service (WAES) between 11th-15th May as we celebrate Adult Learners Week 2009. With a host of FREE tasters taking place from Yoga to computing, languages to graphics there’s something for everyone.

Adult Learners’ Week is a national event celebrating the achievement of the tens and thousands of students who have attained new skills and qualifications in order to enrich their lives or to gain a job.

“Learning is a life long experience, for many adults it is quite a daunting experience going back to education but as our learners have proved that with a bit of perseverance and commitment you are able to go back to studying and achieve your goals.” Says Donald Lush, Director of Student Support at WAES.

The FREE tasters are open to everyone and will take place on Monday 11th May between 10am – 4pm at Amberley Road Centre and between 12 – 4pm on Thursday 14th May at Ebury Bridge Centre. The week will end with Silver Surfers Day on Friday 15th May between 9:30am – 4:30pm at Amberley road centre where there will be a whole range of FREE IT tasters for older people.

If you would like more information on the Taster Days please call our information line on: 020 7297 7297 or visit our website at www.waes.ac.uk.
