A learning services bus is touring towns in West Norfolk this week as part of a scheme to encourage adults to find out more about educational courses available to them.

The roadshow aims to get in touch with people who might not have completed their formal education and to give them the advice that they need in order to gain new skills.

Norfolk County Council’s Chairman of Communities, Margaret Dewsbury said: “Putting learners at the heart of everything we do is essential and after a lot of hard work from staff, we now have a service that will meet and support learners’ needs.

“The roadshow is a fantastic opportunity for staff and visitors to engage, at a local level, to get the best advice.”

The touring bus, organised by Norfolk Community Learning Service (NCLS), will be in various supermarket car parks in Fakenham and Dereham on Wednesday, King’s Lynn on Thursday, and Downham and Swaffham on Friday.

The new programme of courses has been launched since the NCLS received a “Good” rating from Ofsted last month.

The bus will have a team of learning advisors on board to discuss individual learning needs and to provide advice on anything from going back over English and maths skills to training in a completely new area.

The NCLS has courses available on a variety of subject areas such as: modern foreign, access to higher education and creative arts.
