Your Time to Thrive Programme (Adults)

An evidence-led, practical programme solely for adults which encourages and facilitates personal growth and development as well as improving knowledge and skills to be prepared for any career opportunities that lay ahead. We aim to offer a pathway to support adults to re-enter education and the workforce.


Research suggests that adults will have a desire to learn as long as they see the value of what they’re learning. For example, learning a skill that will help them to build capacity to improve their lives, fulfil their aspirations, or advance their career.

A number of studies have shown that adult learning is good for mental health and overall happiness as adults have a greater sense of identity, purpose and sense of accomplishment. Adult learning can help individuals form strong social connections within their community and the opportunity to socialise and interact with other adults, reducing the risk of isolation and loneliness. Studies have shown that adult learning can improve confidence, self-esteem, mental health, and wellbeing. Adult learning provides new skills which, in turn, can create employment and life opportunities, helping people to fulfil their ambitions and inspire others to do the same.

With 10+ years’ experience of teaching adults, we understand the importance of creating a warm, safe and welcoming environment where sessions are fun, highly engaging and practical.

Our weekly sessions which are run in a local school or community centre over 6 weeks, are tailored to suit the needs of individuals. Our course is relevant, engaging and practical, with clear objectives and real-life applications. Group sessions are usually between 60 and 90 minutes long and give adults the opportunity to improve their communication/oracy skills. They also support participants with practical strategies to improve their confidence and self-esteem, have a positive mindset and the ability to self-regulate. Our sessions also offer adults practical tips and support with literacy skills such as application form and CV writing as well as presentation skills. Our maths sessions give adults the tools they need to understand the four basic arithmetic operations, problem solving strategies as well as financial literacy and budgeting. All sessions are delivered in a fun, relaxed way with lots of practical tips to try themselves at home.
