Community Learning - Autism Awareness- Sutton In Ashfield Library
We're always looking to improve your experience. Please send us your feedback.
This flexible programme will support you to learn new skills, gain qualifications and get valuable experience that will help you to take the next step in work and life. It's been developed with carers and parents in mind, ensuring you can learn at times and locations that suit you.
If you are a carer (caring for a child, friend or relative), you are eligible for the programme.
You will work with your personal mentor to plan a programme that works for you. You will work towards an employability qualification, choosing units that you would like to learn about. You can choose from:
The programme is designed to fit around you. You will be able to learn from the convenience of your own home, through your computer. If you don't have a computer, don't worry- we will lend you a laptop. You can also attend optional group learning, that help you take your learning to the next level.
The programme will usually last anywhere between 3 and 6 months.
We have a bursary fund available to support your caring responsibilities. We can also lend you a laptop if you don't currently have access to one. You'll get ongoing support from your mentor.
If you have a certain career path in mind, your tutor will find a work placement for you. This could be a long-term placement or a short-term taster. We work with local employers to provide you with this opportunity.
On completion of the course you will have a thirst for learning. We have strong links with local adult education providers who provide, for example:
