Local colleges abandon adult education


As unemployment continues and many people are desperate to update their skills, both Havant and South Downs College have abandoned or cut back the running of adult education courses. South Downs College recently removed all the courses due to start in January 2010, whilst Havant college called a halt to courses starting in September 2009.

South Downs College were offering a range of courses that included Engineering, Catering, Animal care, Health and Safety, Accounting and many other subjects. However the college has quietly abandoned adult education.

Havant College publicly stated earlier in the year that it could no longer keep courses going. It seems that local public institutions are no longer required to serve the local population, despite receiving substantial funds provided by local tax payers, many of whom are now having problems obtaining work.
