I spent most of this morning on what I would call the inaugural tour of the Wandsworth Learning Bus.

The bus, which starts work right after New Year is run by Wandsworth (with funding from the Transformation Fund) and will be visiting 8 locations in the borough offering taster sessions for adult learners. The bus is fully equipped with computer workstations so many of the courses are computer based, like digital photography and internet skills, but will also have sessions on more diverse topics like interior design and Indian head massage!

The purpose is to get out to people who might not access the learning opportunities that currently exist and the goal is to have had 2,000 on board and learning by the end of March.
