Learning for Wellbeing and Work (LfWW) courses are provided free of charge to adults aged 19 and over. They are for people out of work, returning to work and many others who want to take a first step on a new learning pathway, including retired people. Our courses do not explicitly teach employability skills, but the skills you learn can help you on your path to employment.

We will publish all of our current courses on the website making it easier to keep up to date with the latest information. All of our LfWW courses will be marked with the LfWW logo, but can also be found under the 'Subjects' menu when refining courses.
