Dare To Dream

Dare to Dream course starts this Friday, 30th April.

Do you have dreams but don’t know how to get there, wonder what choices you have and need to make, want to move forward with study, self employment or employment and need to set goals and find the route you need to take? If your answer is 'yes' then this course is for you.

You will produce an action plan and develop goals with a fantastic tutor who will get you thinking and stretching your comfort zones!  These courses boost confidence and encourage group discussions, boosting skills along the way.

Phonics is the way in which children learn to read, learning sounds rather than focusing on individual letters or guessing words.

Do you want to work with children and it would look good on the cv to have knowledge around how children are taught how to read in school? Are you a parent who wants to help your children develop their phonics and don’t understand the terminology or want ideas to help their child develop? This course looks at pre school phonics, phonics terminology, phonics schemes, phonics games and activities to develop confidence, knowledge and skills, whether to help at home to enhance your skills for finding work.
