Courses at the People's College

THE PEOPLE'S College in Wexford is currently accepting applications for its Spring courses.

The courses offered from the first week of February are Digital Photography, Flower Arranging, Sign Language, Complimentary Therapies, Beauty Therapy and Art (watercolour/acrylic).

The courses are held at the SIPTU office at Coolcotts in Wexford town and are administered by the Wexford Council of Trade Unions ( WCTU).

Wexford is the only town to host an outreach programme of the People's College, based in Dublin. The courses are all the more valuable given the VEC's ongoing failure to resume its night classes in Wexford town.

A spokesman for WCTU pointed out that there are no exams connected with the courses and that they are there purely for people to learn and have fun.

Courses vary in price from €60 to €80, with classes taking place one night per week.

For application forms or further information contact the SIPTU office on 053-9146774 or email: wexcountu@gmail.com
