Returning to learning as an adult can be challenging, especially if early experiences of education were difficult. LWETB Adult Education Guidance Service offers information, advice and guidance on training, education and careers for adults who are interested in returning to education. We can offer this before, during or after the course. We are keen to help those who feel they did not do well at school or who left school early and who now want a second chance to improve their education. See below for contact details of LWETB’s Learner Support.
