Connect: is an online life-skills learning platform offering transferable skills to progress and succeed in everyday life.
Connect offers a flexible way for you to learn:
Connect is all online, so you can you access it anywhere with an internet connection. But don’t worry, your camera will be off, so you won’t be seen.
We run sessions six days a week, with morning, afternoon, and evening sessions available. Each session lasts two hours and is delivered by a friendly facilitator in an informal way. There are no exams or tests, just good quality learning on topics that everyone will get something from, including:
You can also access all the session ‘on-demand’ anytime, anywhere so, if you can’t make a live session, you can still benefit from all the learning opportunities.
Connect is available by referral via key partners such as Justice Social Work teams, Housing Associations or Local Authorities.
We’ve designed our programme to be welcoming and inclusive. With a varied menu of sessions, the programme is suitable for most people, providing you have access to a digital device (tablet, phone, lap-top etc) and access to an internet connection.
If you want to learn something new and are happy to engage with online sessions, Connect is for you.
