Mick Mather 120 X 178 .jpgEast Riding College is offering more than 40 free courses on a wide range of fascinating subjects during June and July.
The College's new Discover range features courses for people who simply want to learn new things without any exams or coursework.
They will be held over four or five weeks at venues in Beverley, Bridlington and Driffield.

Mick Mather (pictured), school and community liaison manager at East Riding College, said: "Our new Discover range of courses opens up a world of fascinating subjects and useful know-how, and every course is free.
"You can get handy life skills by taking a Discover course on coping with anxiety, learning how to stand your ground, communicating with others and managing staff effectively.
"Or you can quench your thirst for knowledge by learning about classical music, the economy, classical music and criminology.
"You can also take the first step towards further learning with our two-day Discover Plus quick courses, which give you a taste of subjects like biology, languages and IT."

The courses will be held at the College's campuses in Gallows Lane, Beverley, and St Mary's Walk, Bridlington, and at Driffield School, Manorfield Road, Driffield; the Cherry Tree Centre, Cherry Tree Lane, Beverley; the Hinge Centre, Field Road, Havenfield, Bridlington; and the West Hill Community Centre, Bessingby Gate, Bridlington.
Enrolling is quick and easy. People can enrol in person at the College's Beverley and Bridlington campuses, which are open for enrolment between 10am and 7pm Monday to Thursday and 10am and 4pm on Fridays during term time and Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm outside term time.
To enrol by telephone, call 0845 120 0037. To enrol by post, call 0845 120 0037 and ask for an enrolment form.
Courses are free but people who are in receipt of an income-based benefit are asked to inform the College and take appropriate evidence with them when they enrol.

The College is also running two information sessions to tell people about the huge range of courses offered by the college.
The sessions will be held at the Cherry Tree Centre, Cherry Tree Lane, Beverley and Bridlington Community Resource Centre, Victoria Road, Bridlington, both from 1pm to 3.30pm on Friday, May 29. Residents are welcome to pop in at any time on for coffee and information on courses from college staff.
