Do you want to start a new career or improve your job prospects? Perhaps you’re interested in learning a language, or studying towards a degree?
During Adult Learners’ Week 2013 (18-24 May 2013), Cardiff University’s Centre for Lifelong Learning will be running a programme for people of all ages to introduce them to the benefits of lifelong learning.
Events include: computer programming, Chinese language, Chinese culture, French and German language taster sessions for business, and a talk by Eileen Younghusband, who began her working life in the Filter Room in WWII and went on to write several books. She has been a student at the Centre for Lifelong Learning for more than 17 years and was recently awarded a British Empire Medal for her services and commitment to lifelong learning.
Co-ordinators from the Centre’s flagship Pathways programme will also be on hand with information about studying towards a degree in subjects including: history, archaeology or religion; social science; business management; accounting and finance: modern languages and translation.
Dr Catherine Chabert, Co-Dean of Lifelong Learning said: "Adult Learners’ Week aims to encourage participation in different kinds of learning, whether that’s to improve prospects in a current role, start a new career, or to learn just for fun. The programme of events at the Centre for Lifelong Learning will give adults of all ages a chance to find out about the courses we offer and how they can study at times convenient to them."
