January 2024 Newsletter

Happy New Year from all of us at Adult Learn and Train

The new year gives us all the opportunity to start afresh; Have you thought how you will write, and what will go into your 2024 chapter?
New Year’s Resolutions
If you haven’t broken a resolution yet, give yourself a pat on the back. If you are still contemplating how to make the most of 2024, let us help you. As you are aware, we are avid promoters of Lifelong Learning. Our face-to-face courses ensure that learning sticks through hands-on experience.
This year, why not challenge yourself to learn something new? Choose from a day school to a 10-week course. If you don’t have your English or Maths qualification, perhaps this is the year to book a course and check that off your list.
See our full programme of courses attached.
