Here at Adult Learning we are proud of our service and our learners' achievements. Learning can change lives and we love to hear about where people have progressed to after taking a course with us. Here's just some of the feedback and quotes from our learners:
"I really enjoyed it and really wanted to do more and pursue learning Japanese seriously, so I applied to study Japanese with a number of Universities and Manchester University was the first to get back to me. From a career perspective I really want to be in translation, although there's also a lot in business, so I don't really mind where it takes me."
Ciara's Story - Japanese course
"I am undertaking an Apprenticeship in Level 3 Business Administration and in order to complete it, I required a GCSE grade of C or above in English and maths. As I hadn't achieved that, I needed (rather than wanted) to complete Functional Skills Level 2 in both subjects, which would give me a GCSE grade C equivalent. Once I began and went along this path, the need soon became a want too, as I wanted to be prove to myself, that I could achieve what I initially thought was impossible."
Rhiannon's story – Functional Skills English and Maths courses
"I entered some of my stories into the Henshaw short story competitions and always ask for a critique, which usually arrives soon after the closing date. When I had not received the critique for my last entry, I checked on their web-site and was amazed to find my name on the long list and even more amazed when it reached the short-list of 6. When the critique did arrive I was again encouraged to learn my failure to reach the final prize winning 3 was in the main due to typo's and punctuation. They suggested the story content, with some minor alterations could be a "real gem."
