FREE up skilling sessions for over 50’s


Groundwork Training, in partnership with North East Wales Adult Community Learning (ACL), are hosting a range of free up skilling sessions for those over 50 called ‘Securing your Future’ for individuals looking to improve existing skills or learn new ones.

Working with the Department of Work and Pensions in Wrexham and Flintshire a need was identified for the provision of adults over 50 to have access to sessions that would enable them to improve existing skills or learn new ones to enable them to improve their health and wellbeing, their digital skills and to be more economically active.

Session content and themes will be determined by the needs identified from the attendees at the forth coming drop in sessions.

Upcoming sessions:

09/10/23 | 1pm – 3pm | Holywell

11/10/23 | 2 pm – 4 pm | Buckley

19/10/23 | 10 am – 12 pm | Wrexham

23/10/23 | 10 am – 12 pm | Flint

26/10/23 | 1 pm – 3 pm | Wrexham

These sessions will be a chance to meet the team and identify and plan activities and courses that would be beneficial to those over 50. 

Sessions are all delivered in a friendly, informal way and are learner centered to make sure attendees get the most out of each session.

Louise Stokes, Head of Training, Health, and Safety said “These sessions are so important for people over 50 who want to reengage with learning and development. It gives people the opportunity to explore something new in a relaxed environment and the chance to socialize with likeminded people.

We look forward to working with ACL on this project and are excited to be working in our local communities.”
