Ceremony celebrates great adult learners

Over 40 adult learners attended a learner achievement celebration in the Kirkintilloch’s William Patrick Library recently.

The inspirational learners are on the path to brighter futures thanks to pioneering courses offered by East Dunbartonshire Council and community partners.

Certificates were issued to learners for completing various courses on offer, including in languages, reading, communications and numeracy.

In addition, over 20 adult learning volunteers received certificates in recognition of the work they undertake with learners across East Dunbartonshire.

Council leader Rhondda Geekie, who presented the certificates, said: “It was so encouraging to see so many adult learners at the celebration and I would like to congratulate them on their achievements. They should all be proud of how far they have come and this event was a great way of acknowledging the achievements of those who have taken part in our adult learning programmes.”
