Mums given helping hand by college.

MUMS hoping to boost their job prospects by learning new skills are being given a helping hand by a Leamington college.

Warwickshire College has been chosen as one of only 15 in the country to be a partner of the Elizabeth Nuffield Educational Fund.

The fund offers grants to women who return to the classroom so they can pay for childcare while they learn.

The Warwick New Road college was chosen for the scheme because of its high quality childcare facilities which include a nursery and early years unit that provides low-cost care for two to five-year-olds.

Women aged 25 to 50 who have lived in the UK for at least three years can apply for grants, with support given to those studying Access to Higher Education, A- Levels, National Diplomas, NVQ Level 3 and above, GNVQ Advanced, HNC/Ds, first degrees and diplomas.

Details of the Elizabeth Nuffield Educational Fund are on 01926 318029.
