Paul logs on for learning!

9th Dec 2011

Paul Walker from Heathcotes Knollbeck recently signed up to a 12 week computer course at the Cortonwood Comeback Centre in Brampton. The Centre was established in 1987 by members of the local community who recognised a need to tackle the problems of unemployment, exclusion and disadvantage within Brampton and the surrounding areas, following the miners strike. It now provides a variety of opportunities for people of all ages, including:

  • Meeting places for informal get togethers
  • Education and training for people wanting to develop more skills
  • Information and advice for jobs
  • Benefit advice
  • Help setting up new groups
  • Room hire
  • Free internet access
  • Volunteering

Lynsey Hutson, the Registered Manager, said " Since moving to Heathcotes Knollbeck, Paul has been wanting to complete some form of training, so when his Key Worker found this course it was a perfect starter for Paul to make that step."

Paul added, "Im dead excited about learning how to use a computer properly."
