CERTIFICATES to adult learners have been handed out by Scarborough mayor Cllr John Blackburn.

Dozens of people received official recognition of their achievements at a ceremony held at Talbot House, Queen Street, Scarborough.

“We have a couple of ceremonies a year,” said area adult learning manager for North Yorkshire County Council Joanna Oxtoby.

“The awards are given for various disciplines and subjects. There are those who are taking the first steps into teaching amd others are brushing up on their English and maths,” she said.

There are courses for people looking to change careers or enhance their prospects in their current job.

“The courses are a chance for people to achieve a number of qualifications over a period of time,” said Mrs Oxtoby.

A new programme of courses available is out now with classes starting at Talbot House later this month.
