Adult Education brings their six-week summer program to an end
Adult Education Aide for the South Western District, Mrs Albertha Wiltshire has described the Adult Education summer programme as successful.
Mrs Wiltshire made this disclosure last week Friday when the participants of the program held an exhibition at the Government Headquarters to culminate the six-week training program.
“We normally do six weeks of skills during the summer programme, where we try to encourage adults and young adults to come and learn a skill so that they’ll be independent and more marketable,” said Mrs Wiltshire.
Mrs Wiltshire said that the training covered a number of areas, including plant propagation and basic electronics.
According to her “we had interior decorating, cake making and decorating, basic electricity, pastry making, plant propagation, guitar playing and sewing…”
While describing this year’s summer program as overwhelming, she announced that registration is still open for the sewing class which is being extended throughout September
She added that “the participation was good, we had to turn down some people because of limited space. Persons are always looking forward to the summer where they can come and learn a skill and it was really good this year. We are going to continue the sewing class in September for three month, so persons who are interested can come into the office to register.”
The Adult Education Division conducts its summer skills programme annually during the months of July and August.
