What is the project's aim?

The aim of the Project is to support and compliment work based learning opportunities – with a particular focus on the basic skills of literacy and numeracy.

Why is Connecting Learners needed?

There is an increasing demand on people working in public services. We are now required to do more - with less…
By improving our skills, we will become more confident in the workplace and this in turn will improve the quality of the service we deliver. A commitment to learning will have a knock-on effect to our service users and will create learning culture in our local communities. Remember: "Knowledge is power"…

Where and when will the workshops take place?

Courses can be flexible - depending on service needs, they can be held in the daytime or evening, inside or outside the workplace.

How much will it cost?

All the learning we offer are fully-funded by the Welsh Government so there is no need to worry about course-costs.

Does the training have to be approved by my manager?

If the training is during work hours you will need to gain permission for time off from your manager.
