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
