Learning for Life with High Life Highland in SutherlandSutherland

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 toward getting a qualification if you want.

People learn in different ways with us. 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.

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

Another learning opportunity which might interest you is our accredited Volunteer Tutor Training course. People who have taken the course say that it’s interesting and informative.

As well as this we currently have some other exciting learning projects happening in Sutherland.

Brora Gallery Social Enterprise Project

An in-house creative social enterprise project with environmental and heritage themes.

Basic Computing and I-Pads

Short introductory classes and workshops in Ipads, Tablets and Computers

Climate Challenge Project

Community learning classes and workshops which focus on carbon saving. Classes and workshops include energy cafes, arts and crafts using recycled materials, animation, gardening, swishing (clothes swap) events, etc. The project is in partnership with Lairg and District Learning Centre

Animation and Film

We have a tradition of making films and animations at the centre where students get the chance to help develop storyboards, voiceovers and animation sets or short films with specialist tutors.

Literacy Projects – these include in house Book Festivals projects, poetry cafes and intergenerational literacy projects over the year at the centre and as outreach workshops.
