Councillor Claire Darke, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education, said: "Wolverhampton Adult Education Service, which was rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted earlier this year, provides a great range of academic and vocational courses, everything from languages to floristry, as well as self improvement courses.

"It also does a great deal to prepare local people for the world of work through specific courses, such as help with CV writing, interview skills and training, and Access to Higher Education courses. Some courses are free or available at a reduced rate, depending upon the individual's circumstances.

"I'd urge anyone who wants to improve or learn new skills, achieve additional qualifications or take up a new hobby in 2016 to attend one of the enrolment days to find out what Wolverhampton Adult Education Service has to offer."
