Chance to learn something new; EDUCATION.

PEOPLE who have vowed to take up a new hobby in 2006 need look no further than their local adult education class.

Centres across south Birmingham are taking part in the Sign Up Now campaign which runs from Monday to January 15.

Among them are Bartley Green and Baverstock adult education centres, Quinborne in Quinton, Shenley Court Community Centre, in Northfield, and Weoley Castle Learning Centre.

Run by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education, the campaign encourages adults to think about the positive influence learning can have on their lives.

Courses range from languages and pottery to archaeology and zoology.

They are available at local colleges and adult education centres, or by calling the free learning advice line Learndirect on 0800 100 900.

Details of the courses in Birmingham can be obtained by phoning the information line on 0121 303 4318.

They can also be accessed on the website www.bgfl.org/change yourlife.
