Staying Connected

Pearl began learning from a class in her grandchild’s junior school that she had joined with her daughter. The short courses provided, were an opportunity for her to develop new skills and become more aware of ways to help her communicate and interact more effectively with her grandchildren. Neither Pearl nor her daughter had studied before and were anxious about trying something new.

Pearl says, As a result of online learning, my use of my phone and computer has improved. Seeing my group on the screen has been great! Just a little time for us to set aside for our activities has been so important. I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel with vaccinations, which makes me feel better. I am enjoying my online learning despite the social aspect not being quite the same. I am happy to carry on this way: to be safe and will keep learning online until we can return to a class at the school.”

[Nominator reflects,] “Pearl has come a long way from beginning her very first lesson without any prior learning experience to completing several courses. She has flourished and is enjoying her learning where this is having a positive impact on others around her. She continues to set a great example to her family members by embracing learning and continuing with her studies. It has been truly heart-warming to see the benefits that Pearl’s learning has had with helping her engage with her family.”

As her grandchildren have multiple learning needs, Pearl is interested in furthering her knowledge and skills; she has shared with us that all of her family members have benefited from her learning skills and knowledge on these courses. Pearl is now a positive role model to her family and she is an advocate of trying new things and learning wherever possible.

Great work Pearl, and good luck with your Inspire nomination from everyone at Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales.
