The ACLS (Adult & Community Learning Service) in Nottinghamshire were celebrating having reached their 7,500th adult learner last week.
Sandra, who was attending a ‘Computers for Beginners’ course at Community CentrePoint in Kirkby-in-Ashfield was presented with flowers and a book token for being the lucky learner who marked the target number of learners for the Skills Funding Agency contract held by Nottinghamshire County Council.
Helen Goldsbrough, Development Manager for Community Involvement at ACLS said,
“It’s great to be able to celebrate the fact that we’ve reached our learner target, and to be able to come and meet a learner who is gaining skills and confidence on one of the courses we deliver in partnership with the WEA.”
Richard Jones, the tutor, couldn’t believe that the lucky learner was on one of his courses, and thought the informal presentation ceremony was a really nice way to mark the occasion. Still, the work of ACLS and the WEA doesn’t stop there, as Helen from ACLS went on to say,
“Here’s to the next 7,500!”
