About courses and activities
Short courses include a variety of structured courses, workshops, co-ops and activities.
They are a fantastic way to:
- have fun learning something new
- meet new people
- share skills
- upgrade your business, communication and computer skills
- start your journey towards a new career.
A course is a program of planned, structured learning activities designed to help you to gain new knowledge and skills, and progress towards a specific learning goal.
Some of our short courses lead to a nationally recognised certificate you may need for your job. Others can help you prepare for work or start a new career, and many of these have government-subsidised places available.
Workshops are practical sessions that can be structured or may be more free-flowing.
MakerSpaces are creative, social spaces coordinated by volunteers and provide opportunities for people to share, learn and connect.
There are various MakerSpaces at different locations. MakerSpace members receive a card which entitles them to local shopping and service discounts.
Activities are a range of opportunities such as events, excursions, fund-raising activities and social get-togethers.
