Caring for your well-being
 

Well-being support for our learners

We want you to have a positive experience and get as much as possible out of your course. However, we recognise that adults can face all sorts of issues and challenges at different times in their lives. We aim to be as informal and flexible as possible and if any of our learners are experiencing any difficulties we want to know about them.

Adult learning can be difficult when other challenges come into play. We want to make sure that you reach your full potential, whilst having all the mental well-being support available. It doesn’t matter what the issue is, or what your background is. Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales is committed to providing inclusive support to all of our learners.
