An open day is being held next week (Wednesday 13 January) for adults in Newington, Eastcliff and Northwood to find out more about free courses available to them.

Amongst the free courses on offer to those aged 19 or over in these areas through the doorstep learning scheme are Computers for Absolute Beginners, gardening skills, English, Maths and cake decorating. You can also take a first step towards a career in early years childcare and education, with a course that introduces you to working in a pre-school setting.

All courses are run in local venues, during school times, with breaks for school holidays and people can attend as many courses as they want.

People can find out more about how to apply for the courses at the doorstep taster and information day at Newington Community Centre in Princess Margaret Avenue in Newington between 11am and 2pm, on Wednesday 13 January.

They can also enjoy short introduction tasters in courses as diverse as cooking, confidence building, flower arranging, massage, psychology and gardening.

The courses are funded by Thanet Works and provided by Amicus Horizon, working with Thanet District Council, Thanet College, Kent Adult Education and the Orbit housing group.

To find out more, contact Lewis Watkins on 0800 121 6060 or text, 'TDSL' to 07894 799591.
