Learning for Life with High Life Highland in Caithness

Did you know that High Life Highland has an Adult Learning team that can help if you want to improve and feel more confident about your reading, writing, spelling and number work? You can even work towards getting a qualification.

People can choose different ways to learn. Some work one-to-one with a tutor, others like to join groups. The groups are small and friendly. You decide what you want to learn and which skills you want to brush up on.

Another learning opportunity which might interest you is our accredited Volunteer Tutor Training course – Professional Development Award in Supporting Adult Literacies Learners.

We also arrange classes for people whose first language is not English.


ESOL – English for Speakers of Other Languages

Free of charge classes run locally during school term time in both Wick and Thurso.

Drop In Classes

For help with reading, writing & numbers – free and informal classes run in both Wick and Thurso.

Digital skills classes

Learn how to get online using your mobile device at one of our drop in classes.  Develop your basic computing skills including sending emails, attaching photos and using the Internet safely.

Your Online Library

Learn how to access free digital newspapers and magazines online – including local and national newspapers from around the world. Search the library catalogue to order and renew your books online, download eBooks and listen to eAudiobooks.

If you are interested in learning a new language, the Transparent Language Online is a language learning system that uses flashcards to teach you a set of words or phrases and is a free resource available from Your Online Library.

If you are interested in any of these learning opportunities, then please get in touch with Nina.
