Last week was International Adult Learners Week and the Community Adult Learning Center offers courses free for any interested adult. Barry is the Coordinator and explains their aim is to enhance your skills, employability and personal development. He says their program offers upgrades in stages one, two and three equivalent to anything from grade one right up to high school. He says they work with adults who come to their program and need an upgrade with literacy essential skills or haven’t used their math for a long period of time. He adds they offer GED preparation and computer skills in areas such as word processing, excel and power point along with internet and email and their program has a very flexible schedule delivered one on one or in small group sessions.
The Center is open on the lower level of the Co-op Center Monday to Friday from 9 to 5 and follows the school calendar from September to June.
