We provide outreach taster sessions and courses in hostels, probation offices and day centres in Greater Manchester. The aim of the sessions is to engage with people who would not normally attend an adult education centre. Courses include a variety of computer courses, art, cookery and creative writing. We often run these as a series of tasters, with learners visiting Back on Track or a local training centre for the final session.
Back on Track can provide experienced tutors, volunteers to help to support students, and course equipment and materials (including laptops, printers, cameras, cookery ingredients etc). The host agency provides a suitable room with chairs and tables as needed, publicity for the course, and motivated learners!
If you would like to find out more about setting up an outreach course please contact Irena Przybyl, Outreach Coordinator on 0161 834 1661.
“I first heard about Back on Track when Irena came to do courses at the Thomas Project. It was a positive move in my recovery and my family noticed big changes in my personality.”
