Karline and Sabina are two busy moms with children at St Anne’s Catholic School in Birmingham.
Thinking it would be good to take part in some fun learning activities with their children, they joined a Creative Families course as part of our Family Learning programme at the school.
Do you love writing? Have you got a fantastic creative story to tell? Or maybe a memory or significant moment you're keen to share?
If the answer is YES - we want you to take part in our Summer in the City writing competition and send us your poem, short story, letter or diary entry. Book token prizes are available in both adult and children categories.
Bettie is motivated by a desire to make her mum and her nan proud
She is also driven by her determination to show her gratitude to the NHS staff who have saved her life on countless occasions and to be inspirational to people suffering from life threatening conditions.
Our Independent Living Skills group at Northfield Centre have been organising their very own garden party since April.
Throughout the course, our SEND (Special Education Needs and Disabilities) learners planted a variety of seeds. They used the photos on the seed packets to visualise the plant that would grow, and read the instructions on the packets to learn about sowing depths and conditions.
Welcome to BAES
Adult Education has the power to change lives
Learning new skills should not be something we have just one opportunity to achieve during our schooldays.
At Birmingham Adult Education Service (BAES) we believe that learning is a lifelong journey - it is never too late to learn something new. When the time is right for you to develop new skills to achieve your personal goals or pursue a new career we are here to help.
The last few years have given us all the time to reflect and re-evaluate goals and aspirations for ourselves and our families. Many of us now have a desire to do things differently in both our work and everyday lives. Joining an adult education course will help empower you to make these changes happen.
Our new curriculum offer for this academic year provides choices for everyone, with innovative courses to help those from all communities get back into education and achieve their goals. There is plenty for you to choose from and we hope our courses will inspire you to build a brighter future.
Learning can be exciting, can help build confidence, help you make new friends and, most importantly, can be fun. Research also shows that taking up learning later in life has a positive effect on health and well-being. Enrol onto a course today and let learning be the catalyst to a new future for you, your family, or community!
