• Conor visits Helena Partnerships to mark Adult Learners Week

    Conor marked Adult Learners Week in St Helens North by paying a visit to Helena Partnerships offices on Newton Road.

    At the offices adult learners were undertaking a course on how to use IT and the ways it can be used to save money. 

    Conor chatted with those attending about how the course had helped them and the reasons why they had become adult learners.  

    Commenting Conor said:

    “Adult Learners Week has been a great opportunity to showcase the work of learners and their tutors in St Helens North.  

    “Improving the skills of adults is important to our community, what’s been delivered here in this constituency shows that. Many people are developing new skills, building confidence and creating new friendships.

    “Having spoken to one of the tutors Danny, it is clear that courses like these are not only rewarding for the adult learners, but the tutors as well.

    “I just hope the Government recognise the importance of learning in later life and do not impose further cuts to the funding of adult community learning”
