Welcome to the Adult Education Course Directory for 2015/16 There are lots of exciting courses on offer to improve your skills and qualifications or to improve your well-being.

Aisha who has been studying with BAES has some advice about why you should join a course...

Councillor Penny Holbrook Cabinet Member: Skills, Learning and Culture

Aisha’s story... Hello everyone,

If you’ve picked up this directory you’re probably toying with the idea of enrolling on a course with Birmingham Adult Education Service

My advice to you would be… Do it!

Do it for yourself

From my first ESOL course to my recent GCSEs I have been treated with nothing but respect and kindness by the staff at BAES. I’ve learned more, so much more than the English language and I have re-gained my self-respect. In September 2015 I am starting a degree in Social Work at Wolverhampton University, something which would have been an impossible dream without the help of the BAES team. I have been inspired by some wonderful tutors and their belief in me has helped me smash through a number of barriers in my life.

Do it for your children

My children are absolutely thrilled by the changes they have seen in me since I became a learner with BAES. We now regularly settle down to our homework together and I love it when they ask for my help. When my nine year old son kissed me for luck the night before my GCSE English exam I felt I could look him in the eye, secure in the knowledge that, with the help of BAES, I’ve given him back the mother he deserves.

Do it for fun

I’ve shared my educational journey with scores of other learners whose stories echo mine.

The groups are small at BAES, so no one needs to feel intimidated and a support network is quickly established. We’ve confessed our feelings of inadequacy to one another, we’ve helped one another when the work has proved challenging and we’ve celebrated one another’s successes at every step of the way. We have always found time for laughter and the joy of meeting so many fabulous people has been one of the unexpected delights of my courses. Whether you’re considering one of the many leisure courses BAES offers or whether, like me, you’re looking for an academic qualification you will find BAES a lively, stimulating environment. The key to your future might just lie within the pages of this brochure…

So what are you waiting for? Do it now!

Payment of fees Learners will only be allowed to attend the class when the agreed course fee has been paid or direct debit instalment plan arranged. Can I pay by credit/debit card?

We accept payment by cash, cheque, credit and debit card at our main centres. In our smaller centres we can accept cheques and make arrangements for you to pay your fees by other methods if needed.

Can I pay by instalment?

If you are on a leisure course (marked Y in the listings) that runs for more than 1 term, you may pay termly. If you are enrolled on a course leading to a qualification (marked N in the listings) which is longer than 12 weeks (1 term), you can pay in 3 monthly instalments at your Centre. This means if you enrol on a long course in September you must complete your payments by 30th November 2015. We also have available a Direct Debit Scheme when paying fees for a qualification course (marked N in the listings) which are 20 weeks or longer and cost over £300. An initial first payment of 25% of the total fee is taken followed by 3 payments to cover the remaining balance.

What if my employer is paying my fees?

If your employer is paying your fees, you must show this on your enrolment form. You must also provide a letter from your employer confirming their willingness to pay at the time of enrolment. Once your employer has confirmed they are willing to pay your fees, we will invoice them.

Refunds

Course fees are only fully refundable if we have to close the course. If you change your mind within ten working days of enrolling and before the course starts, we will refund your fee minus an administration charge of £25. Please see our website for full terms and conditions or ask at your local centre.

Support funds are also available for learners who are over the age of 24 and are on a Level 3 course. Under normal circumstances we do not provide childcare funding for children aged 3 years and over. This is because the Government provides free childcare places for this age group.

r beckons”

“Out of adversity a new caree

Brian had an active career as an Army Reservist and HGV Driver until he had to leave his job in 2008 due to serious health problems. He was referred to the Northfield Well-being Hub and took the opportunity to start a computer course. This led him to wanting to continue learning and he came to BAES in 2013. Brian sees his learning as a step to developing his career as a Transport Manager. He is keen to add to his English and computer qualifications by starting a Business Administration course. Brian is aware of how easily he could have just stayed home, unmotivated to do anything, however attending the courses has enabled him to socialise which is something he has always enjoyed doing. Speaking with Brian his passion not only for his own learning and development but the ability to support others is very evident. He says that his “give it a go” approach to not taking everything too seriously helps. If he passes that is a bonus and if not he can always try again. Keeping his mind active is the most important thing to him.

MUHAMMAD Tutor at BAES

Enthusiastic about Maths, enthusiastic about my learners I am passionate about Mathematics and my job is to try and make understanding it fun for my learners. I really enjoy motivating my learners and helping them to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of many new and different Maths concepts. The classroom is a great place to share ideas with each other. Teaching is one of those professions that keeps your brain young, allowing you to continue your own journey as a lifelong learner. I love working with people from the many different communities that make Birmingham such an interesting place to live. With every new learner I teach, I think I learn something new too. In my job, every day is different and my learners are all unique. My goal is to create and provide a safe and exciting learning environment for any learners that join my groups.

Where to find a course... “A dream worth chasing” Back in 2007 Saadi’s poetry was being censored in his homeland and this led to the decision to flee to the UK with his wife and children. On settling into life in England Saadi started to dream that one day he would be able to study at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London and make a career from his poetry and playing the ‘Ney’, a bamboo instrument. To try and achieve this Saadi has to manage all his studies alongside working long hours as a caretaker in a care home. However his dedication and commitment towards gaining a place on his degree course means the dream is becoming more realistic each year that passes. He has so far successfully progressed from ESOL to GCSE English, Maths and Biology.

Visit: www.learnbaes.ac.uk

Saadi is courteous and self-effacing and brings an extraordinary depth of analysis to class discussions. Our renaissance man will deserve every success that he will surely achieve.

“A new direction in life” Paula moved back to Birmingham a few years ago with just a few qualifications and not really knowing what to next with her life. Having seen a BAES advert she decided to go along to her local adult education centre. Not one to do anything half-heartedly she enrolled on IT, Health and Social Care, Interior Design and English Functional Skills courses. She quickly achieved success in all of the subjects and was looking for her next challenge. As Paula’s confidence grew she enquired about becoming a volunteer with us and, having been successfully interviewed, started her first position at The Pump Centre assisting in a Second Steps computers class. Paula says that she likes the atmosphere in adult education and learning has given her the ability to find out who she really is and what she is capable of doing. She’s really enjoying the voluntary work and her aim now is to start working for a charitable organisation and help to achieve positive actions in her community.

“I proved them wrong!” I proved them wrong! Maryan is 18 years old and joined the Specialist Support of Teaching & Learning in Schools - Level 3 Diploma course last September. The year before she resat her GCSEs and completed a level 2 Childcare qualification at her local Sixth Form College. However when she told them she wanted to go to University they didn’t believe that Maryan had it in her to make it happen. Not yet ready to give up on her dream she travelled across the city to our Kingstanding Centre. There she met a tutor who did believe in her and was willing to help Maryan get the organisational and study skills she needed to match her motivation. It’s not always been easy, but with the help and guidance of her tutor, and working within a supportive group, her self esteem has grown. She now has much greater self confidence and increased belief in her own considerable ability. Maryan has recently been told she has been accepted onto a degree course in Childhood Studies at a University in London and in three years’ time fully expects to be ready to start a career in teaching.

Rebecca is a kind, funny and caring person who is very passionate about counselling and the benefits it can bring to some-one’s life. Sharing her own story of personal tragedy had a really positive impact on the group and her tutor, the group felt a real connection with Rebecca who took a big risk with her openness. Rebecca gave the skills taught in the classroom a real life context, sharing her own journey, bringing sessions to life with her enthusiasm, insight and infectious sense of humour. Her own experience encouraged Rebecca to want to give something back and help others. This brought her to enrol on the course and overcome obstacles and challenges to achieve her goals where she is now excited about moving onto a Level 3 Counselling course.

Counselling & Mentoring These courses will teach you skills which are valuable for many careers such as Management, Teaching, Nursing, Care Work and many others. We strongly advise you to enrol first on our internally developed introductory courses in Mentoring and Counselling so that you can gain a solid foundation in the subject. You will then be well prepared before taking your next step onto a course with an external accreditation.

Making sure you’ve got ALL the right qualifications to get a job Jobs within this employment sector hold positions of responsibility and employers will expect you to have appropriate levels of Maths, English and computer skills as well as your work related qualifications. English and maths are embedded into teaching and learning on all courses but entry to some of our accredited courses at higher levels require that you already hold the same level in English as the course you would like to do. Increasingly there is an expectation that learners wishing to undertake some level 3 qualifications provide a certificate to prove that they hold GCSEs in English and Maths at grade A*-C in order to gain entry. If you are unsure about your maths and English skills please speak to a member of staff who will guide you towards the course that is right for you. Important Information: If you want to join a course which includes working in a care setting or schools you will need to apply for a disclosure certificate. These are obtained from the Disclosure and Barring Service. There is more information on this on page 25.

Floristry

Arts, Crafts & Digital Media “I wanted to improve my qualifications because I didn’t do too well at school. I thought, why not study something I actually like doing, and get qualified at the same time. I’ve completed Level 1 and 2, and will finish my Level 3 qualification in Floristry this summer. I’ve already got a job creating corporate floral arrangements for a large company.

Drawing & Painting “Since joining a Drawing & Painting course, I’ve decided to do a Fine Art degree. I’m getting as much experience as I can in different media and techniques, so that I can build a portfolio for university”

42


I’ve always been interested in Photography, so I decided to learn how to do it properly. After completing my level 1 and 2 qualifications I went on and gained my HNC at university. I am now ready to start my working life doing what I love.

Digital Photography and Image Making Clothes Making, Sewing & Textiles “I feel so proud when I’m wearing clothes that I’ve made and people compliment me. They are made to measure, so fit me perfectly. I now know a lot more about measuring and getting angles right. I didn’t ever think I’d be this good at maths.”

Cake Decorating and Sugar Craft

“I started doing cake decorating with BAES for a laugh really, but as my skills developed and people started commissioning me to make and decorate cakes for them, I quickly realised I could supplement my income. What a worthwhile investment it was!”
