Learning new skills is key to our future success
9 out of 10 people firmly believe that learning new skills is a good way of taking control of their future yet 5.4 million (18%) of working age adults have a qualification below level 2 and only 50% of the population have a qualification of level 3 or higher. (Sources: Learning and Skills Council February 2009 and Labour Force Survey Q4 2008)
Kensington and Chelsea College is stepping up to this challenge by launching a new range of courses this Autumn entitled “First Steps”. Aimed at those with no formal qualifications, they enable people to return to study, or get their education on the right path – both of which will help improve job and prospects and help people take better control of their future.
Courses are flexible and multi-disciplined, meaning, students can try out a variety of vocational subject areas. These range from Construction, Art, Design and Photography to Hair and Beauty, Health and Care and Business Studies. Additional support in Maths, English and IT is also given.
