The Rossett Community Partnership for non-accredited adult learning, will offer new courses and introduce experienced tutors to the timetable. Last year, more than 3,000 adults enrolled on part-time courses at Rossett.

Among the courses being offered for the first time in several years include archaeology, family history, film studies and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). The centre, based at Rossett School on Green Lane, Harrogate, will also continue to offer many of the courses which have proved most popular in the past.

Malcolm Howe, head of adult education at Rossett, said: “The demand for adult education at Rossett continues to grow every year, and the number of courses we offer has quadrupled in the last five years.

“Whether you want to learn a new practical skill to use at home, improve your talents in something you already do as a hobby, or simply learn something for pleasure, we think the new programme will have something to suit you.”

As well as evening classes, the adult education programme includes numerous sessions during the day. Also featured are the Rossett Lectures, a series of talks on diverse subjects including literary forgeries and women in the First World War.

Mr Howe added: “Offering education to local people – not just those aged between 11 and 18 – is an important part of our work and we look forward to welcoming new students of all ages this autumn.”
