Adult and Community Learning ‘in the loop’

Issue 20 June 2014

Hello everyone and welcome to ‘in the loop’. In this edition of ‘in the loop’… the latest on the course guide and bookings for next year…

Our Summer Open Day…. Congratulations to some very clever people and a few places left on a Saturday Textiles workshop.

Things we have done this week:

I am delighted to say that the new course guide is now complete, (always start with the good news!) unfortunately setting up the new online booking has been more complex than we hoped (that’s the bad) but we have been working hard to solve those issues and both the website and the course guide will both be available very soon.

We had planned this to be significantly earlier this year and delays like this are always a possibility when changing over systems, so happily even with this delay we will still be able to ‘go live’ earlier than in previous years.

We will send out a special ‘in the loop’ as soon course guides are available to pick up and booking is ‘live’ so keep a keen watch on your in box – you’ll be first to know!
