Wolverhampton residents are being urged to boost their job prospects and learn new skills by enrolling on adult education courses.

An Open Day will take place on Saturday 29 June at Wolverhampton City Council's Adult Education Service (AES) based in Old Hall Street.

The day, which will run from 10am to 2pm, will provide information on a range of courses including Art and Crafts, Languages, ESOL, Maths and English, Access to Higher Education, Teaching and many, many more subjects.

People will also be offered the opportunity to enrol on a selection of courses.

Some courses lead to national qualifications from basic to advanced levels, while others offer the opportunity to learn purely for fun and enjoyment.

Specific courses prepare learners for work and employment, helping with CV writing, interview skills and training. Many of these courses are free, depending upon your circumstances.

Councillor Phil Page, Wolverhampton City Council's Cabinet Member for Schools, Skills and Learning, said: "The excellent courses offered by our Adult Education Service can help people gain important new skills and confidence to improve their job prospects.

"They can also be a great way for people to become more involved in their community and find new friends.

"I would urge people to attend the Open Day and find out about the courses that are on offer in their area."
