Life is sweet for learners as new Erith Adult Education Centre is launched
BEXLEY Bake Off fans can hone their culinary talents at a new adult education site in Erith High Street.
The building officially opened last Wednesday (October 23) with a community event and offers a range of courses including cake decorating office skills and hairdressing.
It is also hoped the Erith Adult Education Centre will provide a community hub for family and neighbourhood learning in the borough.
Neighbourhood learning courses are free for students who are unemployed, on a low wage, voluntary workers or those receiving benefits, with the aim of getting people back into learning, giving them skills and confidence.
Upcoming courses include beginners computing, hair and beauty, Christmas flower workshop, food safety, first aid, introduction to childcare and cake decorating.
Strategic Manager for curriculum and training Rosie Eaglen said: "The new Erith centre is already very busy, residents and workers are discovering where we are and are dropping in to find out what we have to offer.
"We really want to develop opportunities in Erith and need to know from the ‘locals’ what they want to learn so that we plan a programme of courses can really responds to their needs."
