Director of Learning and Work Institute Cymru, David Hagendyk said: “We know that adult learning has the potential to change lives and now more than ever it is important people have the chance to retrain for work and learn something new to help their health and well-being.

“Coronavirus has hit every one of us in some way. Adult learning is a great way to help all of us to prepare for the recovery, with all the evidence showing it can help people to find work, get a promotion, or to look after their health and well-being.

“During lockdown thousands of people turned to online courses to keep in touch with other people and to learn something new. As we start to unlock the economy and our communities, there has never been a more important time to start learning again.”
