The Place in Fallowfield is a multi use learning centre incorporating Fallowfield library. There are courses offered by the WEA and it is supported by local housing provider One Manchester. It is an inspiring example of the community and local businesses coming together to save a great local resource from the cuts. The Place is home to some larger events which showcase different opportunities available. One example of this is an upcoming event on apprenticeships in January.
When people arrive at education events they may be nervous. They may not have had the best time at school or other education. They may lack confidence in seeking out new opportunities.
Can you design an activity that can happen to support other events. Your mission is to help people gain confidence about learning and make a link to what they have already done. It might be full of familiar and friendly things and allow them to get involved in a fun way. At the end of visiting your stall, they should come away feeling positive about what they already know and ready to learn more.
