National Star launches adult community learning programme in Hereford

Classes in cooking from around the world, IT and social drama will be part of an exciting, new adult community learning programme being launched in Herefordshire by National Star next month (November).

Herefordshire Council has funded National Star to deliver a series of six-week courses designed to help learners develop fresh skills, meet new people and become more independent.

The courses, aimed at adults with disabilities within the local community, will appeal to a wide range of people interested in developing their confidence in using IT, improving their cooking skills and becoming creative through drama and creative arts.

‘National Star has delivered a highly successful adult community learning programme in Gloucestershire for a number of years and we are excited to be in a position to extend our reach into Herefordshire, where we know there is a need for evening courses of this kind,’ said Jayne Hashmat, Head of Learning and Support at National Star.

The courses will be delivered at National Star’s premises in Harrow Road, Hereford between November to June, with learners being able to pick and mix courses they are most interested in.

Taster sessions are being staged at National Star on Saturday 26 October, between 2pm and 4pm to give people a flavour of what to expect from the new courses.

Registration is now open with learners interested in finding out more about the programme being encouraged to express their interest by contacting Katrina Bird on or by telephoning 01242 534915.

Adults with disabilities aged 19 or over not in full-time education are eligible to join the free courses. A contribution of £10 per person is required to cover material costs for those participants attending creative arts, social drama and cookery sessions.
