Adult Skills – Independence at Linkage Community Trust

Course description

Linkage’s Adult Skills service offers great opportunities for you to inspire yourself.

We offer expert and friendly staff, great facilities and huge range of opportunities for getting involved in the world of work, in the community and for learning how to do more and new things for yourself.

Adult Skills is a completely flexible programme and can be started at any time during the year. You can join us for half a day, a full day or for two, three, four or five days a week and you can start at any point during the year. It’s all built around YOUR goals!

Course content

It’s a great feeling when you are able to do something for yourself, rather than have to depend on someone else to do it for you... talk to us about the things that you would like to be able to do more independently. We can work out a plan to help you achieve a more independent life.

However, you can be supported flexibly and also on an ‘outreach’ basis, closer to your home, if you wish.
