Educate while you isolate with East Sussex College

East Sussex College offers free short courses through its online training centre, Grasp Learning, enabling adults to train or upskill during lockdown and beyond.

As we get to grips with working from home, East Sussex College has gone one step further in helping adults (aged 19+) to gain a new qualification during this difficult time. Grasp Learning is the online training provision from the college and supports individuals and businesses by offering a selection of courses for free.

Educate while you isolate

A college spokesperson says, “Grasp free short courses support those who are furloughed, have been made redundant, or are self-isolating. Our online training is easy to access and is a great way to upskill or get into work. Health and Social Care courses are always popular with our learners and we are pleased to be offering courses to train adults before they volunteer or work in a Health and Social Care setting. These individuals are needed in abundance right now, and to help prepare them for the work is a way we can give back to the community.”

Learners receive a nationally recognised qualification in courses such as Digital Skills for Work, Understanding Safeguarding and Prevent, Understanding Children and Young People’s Mental Health, Customer Service, and Principles of the Prevention and Control of Infection.

Grasp Learning is led by Sussex Skills Solutions, the in-house apprenticeship and training division of East Sussex College, covering the South East. Sign up online to receive updates on new courses added each month. For more information please call 030 300 39777 or click here.
