‘Never too late to learn’ is the theme of Adult Learners Week which runs from 12th to 18th May and aims to encourage mature people back into education.


To support this national initiative, the University of Lincolnshire is running free taster sessions at the Cottingham Road Campus in Computer Aided Design and the Internet to give prospective students a chance to find out what’s on offer.


‘Introduction to AutoCAD’ sessions will take place on 15th May from 6pm to 8pm at and are aimed at beginners with a basic interest in Computer Aided Design. The sessions include hands-on experience in 2D draughting, using basic functions and dimensioning.


‘Introduction to the Internet’ sessions will take place on 17th and 18th May from 9am to 12 noon and are aimed at complete beginners who may be confused by the technology. They include interactive exercises such as shopping on-line and Internet treasure hunts.


“Adult Learners Week is a great way of reminding mature people that there are so many opportunities available to them in higher education,” said Jacqueline Mayer, education liaison manager.


The free-of-charge sessions have been organised by the university’s Department of Engineering and places are limited.


Those interested in AutoCAD sessions should reserve a place with Caroline Hill on 01482 463355 and those interested in Internet sessions should contact Jacqueline Mayer on 01522 886046.
