Inspire Learning hosts free information events for young people

Posted onPosted on 5th May

Inspire Learning Nottinghamshire will hold open evenings throughout May for young people and their families who are interested in college courses and traineeships.

There will be chance to meet the tutors, find out more about the courses on offer, get advice and guidance, take a tour of the bases and enrol.

Inspire Learning’s study programmes for young people, aged 16-24, delivered in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council, are designed to give young people a first step in to further study, employment, traineeships or apprenticeships. Young people work towards a recognised qualification, and have the opportunity to re-sit GCSE maths and English.

The open evenings will be held on:

Retford Young People’s Centre – 10 May, 3.30 – 5.30pm
Arnold Redhill Young People’s Centre – 10 May, 3.30 – 6pm
Eastbourne House, Sutton-in-Ashfield – 12 May, 3.30 – 6pm
Newark Library – 12 May, 3.3.0 – 6pm
MyPlace Mansfield – 17 May, 3.30 – 6pm
Stapleford Young People’s Centre – 24 May, 3.30 – 6pm
Hucknall Young People’s Centre – 27 May, 3.30 – 6pm
Young people can enrol on to an Inspire Learning study programme at any time during the year with Study Programmes delivered from nine bases across Nottinghamshire: Arnold Redhill Young People’s Centre, Hucknall Young People’s Centre, Sutton in Ashfield (Eastbourne House), Eastwood Young People’s Centre, MyPlace Mansfield, Newark Library, Retford Young People’s Centre, Worksop The Crossing and Stapleford Young People’s Centre.

As well as being an Ofsted registered good provider, Inspire Learning is winner of the Tes FE award 2020 for Adult and Community Learning Provider of the Year and was also shortlisted for the Tes FE Outstanding GCSE Resits Provision Award.

Ian Bond, Inspire Learning Director. said: “The 2019/20 academic year GCSE results build on the previous years’ excellent performance and exceeded national pass rates. 64% of our students achieved a grade 4 or above in Maths (the national benchmark is 33%) and 49% achieved a grade 4 or above in English (the national benchmark is 41%). We offer one to one tutor support and our group sizes are small. Plus, young people earn a bursary of up to £100 per month which does not affect child benefit, so I’d encourage anyone not sure about joining us to come along to meet some of our friendly tutors and get more information.”
