Join Glyndwr University on the Wrexham Learning Bus for fun taster workshops
Hop on the Wrexham Learning Bus travelling around the county as part of the Festival of Learning.
Wrexham Glyndwr University, alongside Adult Community Learning partners, is encouraging members of the public to hop on the bus for free and be part of a county-wide festival of celebration to promote learning.
Festival of Learning is a national celebration of lifelong learning, with 'Have a Go' learning events taking place in Wrexham during May and June.
In collaboration with the Learning and Work Institute, representatives from the university and other adult learning and service providers across the county, will be out and about on the Wrexham Learning Bus, offering information, advice and guidance and fun taster workshops all for free.
“It’s the perfect way to find out more information about us, what courses we provide, and the chance to see our new look prospectus, all while having a great day out with friends and family,” said Sarah Gaffney, Wrexham Glyndwr University’s widening access co-coordinator.
“We are delighted that the festival is in Wrexham this year. We wanted to create an event that would encompass learning, skills and promote adult learners week in the Wrexham area.”
The bus will start its journey at the opening ceremony of Wrexham Street Festival on Saturday, April 30 in Wrexham Town Centre and will be travelling around Acton, Brynteg, Caia Park and Hightown, Coedpoeth, Gwersyllt, Llay, and Plas Madoc as well as other locations around the town centre.
The Wrexham Learning Bus will give visitors the chance to chat with representatives from organisations such as Wrexham Itec, Libraries, Communities First, Careers Wales, the Job Centre, and The OU and WEA Cymru.
There is no need to book, just pop in whether we are parked in your area or if you want to take part in a specific session taking place in another area – the bus is open to all.
Wrexham Glyndŵr University will also play a key role in the project, for those interested in any of their courses.
