Classes strike the right chord.

INSPECTORS have praised adult classes covering computing to the guitar in Coventry.

Ten inspectors from the Office for Standards in Education visited Coventry City Council's adult education service, where they sat in on classes and talked to students and staff.

The inspectors concentrated on courses in caring, health, computing and preparation for life and work.

They said leadership was good, success rates were good and the courses were good quality.

Cllr Tim Sawdon (Con, Wainbody), Coventry City Council's cabinet member for culture, leisure and libraries, said: "This report provides an excellent verdict on the adult education service.

"Congratulations go out to all those involved in this positive result."

More than 10,000 people signed up for adult education classes in Coventry last year.
