St Ives Cornwall - Education Hub
St Ives Cornwall - Education Hub

There is a new programme of courses for 2018 at the Education Hub
at St Ives Library.

Run in association with Workers Educational Association (WEA) Cornwall and Penwith College.

Details of the first four - on a varied and interesting range of subjects - are below.

Free places are available on the WEA courses if you are on qualifying benefits. Use the links for each to check details - or call in at the library for more help.

Also - advance booking is essential - you can't just turn up on the day.

If there are not enough students booked in advance the courses will be cancelled. Which would be a shame ... after all the hard work that the library team and others have put in to get this programme up and running ... and after so many people have said that they want to see further education courses return to St Ives.

So please book!
Or call in at the library for more info and help if you need it.
