A GROUP of learners from Whitehaven and Workington have completed a level three adult teacher training course with the Workers’ Educational Association.
The learners who studied the course, passport to teaching in the lifelong learning sector, attended a ceremony at Whitehaven’s Haig Mining Museum recently. The learners, some staff and others volunteers came from a variety of backgrounds.
Anne Wilson, Workers’ Educational Association tutor, said: “Their diversity of experience made it a really interesting course. We had learners from Cumbria CVS, a hairdresser, a caterer, an architect, a Return to Work support worker, a cadets trainer, a dancer, as well as workers and volunteers from the Museums and Archives service.
“I don't think I can remember such a variety of micro-teaching practice sessions - I learnt so much too.”
The Mayor of Copeland, John Jackson, presented the certificates, praising the recipients for their commitment to developing their skills, adding to job prospects and improving their current work skills.
