Busy Year For Scilly’s Lifelong Learning

lifelong learning signScilly’s Lifelong team learning put on 53 courses and taught 407 Scillonians last year.

And the skill most locals wanted was first aid, according to Town Hall figures. 77 people joined those sessions, organised by the Council team at their new Carn Gwaval base.

The islands’ appetite for lifesaving skills is being met through additional sessions offered by Beryl Read of St John Ambulance and island paramedic Wayne Davey.

Jo Evans of Lifelong Learning says they’ve tried to employ more local tutors. That means they can host more classes in the evenings, to allow people working during the day to attend courses.
