Additional Information for Adult Learners

FUNDING

These courses are indicated with an * in our programme. 

Some of our courses are funded through the Adult Education Budget allocated by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) or the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and part financed by the 2014-20 European Social Fund (ESF) programme.   This funding is managed by Cambridgeshire County Council, Adult Learning and Skills.   A short video covering the background of ESF, what it does, how it helps and who benefits is available on the European Union website: http://ec.europa.eu/esf/home.jsp

  

EQUALITY STATEMENT

 We are fully committed to equality of opportunity and welcome enrolments from all adults aged 19+ (on 31 August 2019). We positively encourage all learners with any concerns about specific needs which might affect their learning to discuss their requirements with us in confidence. We believe that everyone is entitled to learn in an environment that is free from discriminatory behaviour so that we build a community based on mutual trust and respect. We will do our best to ensure that resources and equipment are accessible to all and make reasonable adjustments to ensure that all learners can access activities.

Cambridgeshire County Council, Adult Learning and Skills service supports a wide range of other adult learning opportunities across Cambridgeshire to support adults with the lowest level of qualifications, or no qualifications at all, and so typically find themselves in lower paid, less secure jobs or unemployed.    Search our website www.cambsals.co.uk  for details of all our funded courses.

 

SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT

Arrangements have been made to make sure that you are safe at our Centres. If you feel you are not safe for any reason, for example through verbal or physical abuse or you have been discriminated against, please tell your tutor or the Centre Manager, who will investigate to ensure your safety.
