A new city-wide project has been launched which aims to get hundreds of people learning and skill-sharing across Coventry. WeLearnLocal is leading a major skill-sharing initiative supported by the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, Coventry University Social Enterprise, Coventry Libraries Service and City College Coventry.
The Coventry start-up has launched welearnlocal.co.uk – an online hub for learning opportunities for adults in the city. Learning opportunities may help skill development which will range from business, professional insight, digital skills and health, through to hobby skills, arts and crafts, well-being, language, culture, and music.
The hub will be hosting a city-wide summer of skill-sharing, whereby people living in the region will be able to use the website to search for lessons being taught in a range of venues across the city – including libraries, Coventry University campus and City College Coventry.
WeLearnLocal supports instructors and skill-sharers by providing them with access to instruction space and taking care of promotion and advertising for their lessons.
“The initiative is all about being a champion for instructors, a gateway for learners and celebrating lifelong learning. The aim is to connect people within communities through fun group lessons and empowering instructors to do what they do best to support the skill development of the others.
“Coventry already hosts two of the UK’s top universities and we all hope it will be UK City of Culture 2021. Our mission is to make Coventry the UK’s number one city for adult learning and skill-sharing.”
