A series of new courses has been announced in the recently published ‘you live, you learn’ Spring prospectus, which includes details of more than 300 courses in adult learning centres across the county – including the one off Cottingwood Lane in Morpeth.

It includes the following: free short courses in digital skills, English and maths, customer service and retail and getting started in the leisure industry. Free taster workshop courses are also available in social care and education.
