Book now for our lifelong learning classes
Bookings can now be made for our Lifelong Learning and Employability 2018/19 classes.
New skills, new qualifications
The ‘Aim High’ programme offers a number of opportunities to brush up old skills or learn new ones and gain qualifications – all in relaxed and friendly venues.
Lots on offer
Classes, available across the county, include everything from criminology to crafts with both certificated and non-certificated courses offered.
The joy of learning
The activities aim to get people of all ages and backgrounds into learning, enhancing the opportunity of employability and further education or simply helping to rediscover the joy of learning.
£200 towards costs of some courses
Learners who are eligible can also apply for up to £200 towards the cost of some courses through Skills Development Scotland’s Individual Training Accounts (ITA) scheme.
Cllr Jim Muirhead, deputy leader of the council and cabinet member for education and children’s services, said: “Our Aim High classes offer a fantastic opportunity to enhance qualifications, get back into learning and meet new people.
Skills for life and work
“The classes have been a big success in recent years, helping young people, adults and families develop skills for learning, life and work. I hope many take the opportunity to get involved in the variety of great classes on offer again this year.”

Enrolment starts today (Tuesday 14 August) at 10:00am and classes can be booked online or in person at designated venues. Printed brochures can also be found at Lifelong Learning and Employability venues, libraries and leisure centres.
