Councillor Dr Michael Hardacre, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “Despite the ongoing restrictions in place because of the coronavirus pandemic, we want to ensure adult learners still have the chance to take part in high quality courses delivered by Adult Education Wolverhampton’s experienced and engaging teachers.

“Students will be able to study and take part in these short courses at a pace and a time to suit them in the comfort of their own homes. All they need is a computer with a microphone and camera, email address and an internet connection to take part.

“The courses are free and will keep people engaged in learning, learn new skills and stay mentally and physically active. They’ll also prove useful additions to their CV, too.”
