The severe weather conditions which affected the country before Christmas have had an impact on the delivery of booklets advertising the City of Edinburgh Council’s Adult Education programme – leaving spaces to be filled in several popular courses.

The 2011 Adult Education Programme was published in November – just as the bad weather hit the city – and offers a wide-range of different courses for Edinburgh residents, covering everything from antiques and archery to yoga.

The classes are set to begin on 24th January but it is possible to enrol by telephone on Wednesday 12th or Thursday 13th January from 10am-8pm on 0131 469 3345.

There is also an additional opportunity to enrol in advance on Monday 17th January from 10am-4pm by phoning 0131 556 7978 or by calling into South Bridge Resource Centre in Infirmary Street.

It may also be possible to enrol at the first session of the class. To check if spaces are available, call 0131 556 7978 on Friday 21st January from 10am-4pm.

City Education Leader, Cllr Marilyne MacLaren said:-“The severe weather before Christmas has had an impact on course uptake with many Edinburgh residents unable to pick up a programme or enrol, which has resulted in some free spaces.

“Several popular courses which are usually fully-booked still have spaces – so if you’re interested in learning something new, or want a change of career for 2011 – get in touch and book your place now!

“The 2011 programme has been designed by our adult education team to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities and all the courses are a great chance to meet new people and learn something different.

“Plenty of flexibility is built into the programme as to how and when people can study, with opportunities to take classes at different community centres across the city and at different times of the day and the week.”
