Lancashire Adult Learning is offering free new courses to support the county’s employers as Learning at Work Week kicks off.
Learning at Work Week is coordinated by the Campaign for Learning and runs from Monday 17th May to Friday 23rd May. The aims of the week are to promote lifelong learning at work and build learning cultures everywhere.
The new range of courses offered by LAL to employers and their employees run throughout May. They focus on Health and Wellbeing, and are designed to meet the needs of Lancashire businesses.
Courses cover three main areas: Relaxation, Mindfulness and Positivity; Creative Wellbeing; and Exercise, Health and Cookery.
Under the Relaxation, Mindfulness and Positivity area, courses include Simple Relaxation Techniques, Five Ways to Improve Your Wellbeing and Finding Positives in Challenging Times.
Creative Wellbeing courses offered include Singing and Music for Wellbeing and Creative Recycling and Eco-Crafts. Exercise, Health and Cookery sessions range from Chair Based Yoga through to Quick and Healthy Cookery.
All of the courses can be booked online through the LAL padlet for Learning at Work Week here.
