The county council’s adult learning service, GoLearn, has launched free classes as part of the ‘Have a Go Month 2024’ for anyone aged 19+. Classes are taught at venues across the county, by specialist tutors from across the GoLearn programme.

Free sessions include British Sign Language, Italian, drawing and painting, fused glass, mental health awareness for families, cookie in a jar workshop (Multiply), drama for wellbeing and more. 

GoLearn are also offering 'Skills for Life Roadshow’ events in venues across Leicestershire, giving residents a chance to think about the skills they need for their future – whether it’s an English, maths or IT qualification, or a new skill to boost a CV.

Paul Fleming, Head of Service for Adult Learning, said: “GoLearn has such an extensive list of courses, and these taster sessions are a great way for you to try out some of the great sessions we have available.

“I hope residents take up the opportunity to see what’s on offer and how GoLearn can help them.”
