Mark Isherwood AM to launch learndirect at Mold Library and Museum

Deeside College has been working with selected Flintshire libraries on a pilot project over the past two months, introducing students to learndirect, an online learning facility they can access through their local library.

On Friday, 13 November at 10am Mark Isherwood, AM will meet with learndirect students and staff from both the college and the library to formally launch the scheme.

Learndirect is the largest e-learning network in Wales, and enables people to access a huge range of courses direct from home or a local community venue, at a time to suit them. Many of the basic courses are free, and include English, maths and ICT. Flint, Holywell and Mold libraries have become link centres where prospective students can try a free demonstration and taster course, and get further information about what’s available from specialist tutors from Deeside College. They can then continue to use the computers in their local library to follow their chosen course if they wish. Learnrdirect will be rolled out to more libraries in the New Year.

For further information please contact Nia Wyn Jones, Community Librarian on 01352 754791.
