What our students say...
“Since joining the Adult Education in 2016, I have moved from a taster course to completing a Level 1 qualification. I have been impressed with the teachers who are very supportive and keep me fully engaged.”
“Joining Adult Education has been a life changing experience for me. The staff at Adult Education are great. They have helped me to learn and believe that I am capable of achieving whatever I set out to do.”
“Thanks to the support from Adult Education and my tutor I have succeeded in getting the job I wanted as a teaching assistant. I cannot recommend Adult Education enough. Thanks to them, my life has changed so much in the last 12 months. I am excited to see what else is to come.”
“Adult Education is the place to go whatever level of education you are at...this place has turned my life around. My health, wellbeing and job prospects are back on track.”
“When I first came to Adult Education I felt very nervous and lacked confidence in myself and my abilities. My confidence has grown and so have my skills. I am proud that I can now communicate with the deaf community using BSL and look forward to using it with friends and in the work place.”
“I plan to complete higher level qualifications in english and maths and carry on with my office skills. My children are proud of me and my learning is encouraging them to do more too. My advice to anyone thinking about learning is “Come straight to Adult Education Wolverhampton - they can help you, no matter what!”
“Adult Education has helped me a lot. It has sharpened my floristry skills and has given me the confidence to believe in myself and my abilities. After finishing the Level 1 qualification I continued to my Level 2. I want to promote myself as a florist and hopefully one day venture into my own business. I would recommend Adult Education to anyone who wants to learn new skills and better themselves.”
❹ The 'Extras' from your learning
As well as gaining skills and qualifications, learning can bring a whole range of other benefits. Each year we ask our students what benefits they have got from their learning. Of 993 students surveyed last year 70% had gained in confidence, 35% had improved their physical or mental health, and 30% were more involved in their child’s education.
