Along with several colleagues, I recently attended a drop in session for Leeds City Council staff. This was arranged by John Clark, the TUC Union Learn Coordinator at the Council, following a very successful visit last year.
The aim of the visit was to allow members of Leeds City Council staff to come and talk to us about the programmes and services we offer. This was a very busy event with enquiries about a broad range of issues. Some people were happy to talk to our Advice and Guidance team about possible career paths and how their learning journey would help, whilst others had already formulated a very clear idea about what they would like to study and simply had a few questions.
As part of the Business Management team I was able to help several people who believed that the part-time Business Management course would be useful to their career, and I hope to welcome some of them onto our course in September. Other LLC colleagues were able to answer enquiries from those wishing to progress in teaching or develop a career in childhood studies.
I always enjoy visiting different organisations to talk to people about how the Lifelong Learning Centre can help them. The University offers a number of open days when prospective students come in to see us but it is also nice to talk to people in their workplace.
This was so successful another visit has been arranged for July, which we’ll post about then.
