Personal Development Courses

Our courses focus on independent living, rights and responsibilities.

Nottinghamshire County Council has commissioned a-2-e to deliver learning to adults with learning disabilitiesaged 19+ who live in or have services provided by the County Council. All courses are 3 days.

All courses are funded by the Skills Funding Agency so are free to learners

Courses are designed for entry level and above and all have SMART aims and objectives. Themes can be developed to suit learners with a wide range of abilities. Each activity aims to build on skills and knowledge and real life experience and progression information is given the help people and their carers to take next steps to progress their learning. Our courses particularly suit people who don't like to commit to long courses or who are sometimes reluctant to join courses. Confidence building is guaranteed.
