In response to Covid- 19 and the ongoing lockdown restrictions, (although gradual easing is taking place), GoLearn! (Leicestershire County Council's Adult Learning Service) has created NEW Online Learning resources for adults across Leicestershire to access FREE of charge.

The 'Life and Learning in Lockdown' area makes available a wide range of learning materials, activities and courses which are open to all members of the public. This new site offers a range of opportunities from Digital Skills to Languages, and well-being to Family Learning.

The benefits of lifelong learning for good mental health, social mobility and employment prospects are well known. During this current crisis many individuals, and their families, will be facing uncertainty, as we move towards recovery we feel these resources will support ongoing resilience in our communities.

Support available includes:

  • Family Learning resources and activities for parents to support home-schooling and better understand their children's education.
  • Resources for Adults with Learning Difficulties and/or Disabilities to support and sustain their development and well-being.
  • Courses and activities including languages, craft, art, IT, English and maths and cookery, all designed to support the public and our service users to stay active, safe and well during isolation.

In addition to the above, GoLearn has resources and support available for any individual facing an uncertain future with regard work and employment. GoLearn offers a FREE and impartial Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) service from qualified Learning and Work Advisors available to provide one to one telephone support to help individuals take their next steps in either learning or work.

If you, or those in your community, would like more information please contact us on our dedicated advice line on FREEphone 0800 988 0303 or email to arrange a telephone appointment.
