WATTON'S Wayland Partnership is launching a complex education and training network aimed at adults with a thirst for knowledge.

The community-led regeneration body has linked up with a series of education providers to offer courses ranging from budgeting lessons to language learning, digital photography and university of the third age.

“Learning is something you do from cradle to grave,” said Jan Godfrey, chairman of trustees at the Wayland Partnership.

“We are now looking to create a network of learning providers who would be able to deliver courses on demand.”

Mrs Godfrey said one of

the providers will be ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) who will be offering courses to non-native speakers, mainly working in conjunction with Bowes Abattoirs which employ a large number of migrant workers.

Other partners will include the Workers' Education Association and City College, Norwich.

“We'll be offering digital photography courses and introductions to web surfing. However, we are very keen to hear from residents who might be interested in other courses and who would like us to arrange something for them,” Mrs Godfrey said.

“We aim to offer as many free courses as possible, but it all depends on people's circum-stances.”

The Wayland Partnership and the education providers will launch the network at Wayland House on July 22 at 12pm.

For any information contact Jan Godfrey on 01953 883915.
