These are some of the courses in the pipeline for the new year:
A Business Start Up course (likely the very end of February) – course content and dates and times are still flexible, so if you think you would like to take advantage of this free course please contact Corinne as soon as possible. This may also be relevant to businesses who have already started but want some help putting together business plans for future development. Cost: free. Time: one to 1.5 days
Basic work related courses: for example Food Hygiene, First Aid, etc. If there are 6 people needing to do any of the Orkney College Short Courses then these may be able to happen on Westray. The new Learning Centre Coordinator will be contacting local businesses to find out what your training requirements are for the next year.
Evening self study group (for people doing ECDL or any distance learning). This can start when the new internet connection and computers have arrived for the Learning Centre
Drop in sessions for Ipad learners and anyone needing help getting online
Other courses – contact the new WDT Learning Centre Coordinator to discuss (through the WDT office). Things like SAGE accounting, manual handling, or recreational and leisure courses (genealogy online, digital photography, etc) have all been suggested already.
