This Autumn, Dysgu Bro are pleased to introduce new courses, as well as returning favourites, for the adult learners of Ceredigion.

One learner that attended a class last year said, “I feel more confident in using modern technology - and having the opportunity to learn with other people who have similar interests.” An older learner said, “The course has helped me see that age does not stop anyone. Whatever skills you want to develop - it's worth it, at whatever your age.”

The courses will enable learners to develop new skills in their chosen areas.
