NEVER STOP LEARN­ING

Highfields' Own - - Education -

Tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments, new sci­en­tific dis­cov­er­ies and changes in pol­icy or leg­is­la­tion mean we have to keep our­selves in­formed about the chang­ing world around us.

If we don’t, we’ll be left be­hind, con­fused and con­cerned.

Luck­ily there are plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to learn. Let’s start with your lo­cal li­brary. Visit the High­fields Li­brary and find out about com­puter classes that will fill in all the gaps about ba­sic com­put­ers, email­ing, on­line bank­ing and so­cial me­dia as well as cy­ber safety, ipads, mo­bile phones and tablets.

All Toowoomba Li­brary users have ac­cess to Lynda.com with more than 4000 free on­line cour­ses and more than 200,000 video tu­to­ri­als on the lat­est com­mer­cial soft­ware in­clud­ing busi­ness, pho­tog­ra­phy, multi-me­dia, mar­ket­ing, mu­sic and web de­sign.

If you visit www.eventbrite.com.au and search the Toowoomba area you will find cour­ses with small fees that cover ev­ery­thing from web de­sign to es­sen­tial oils and par­ent­ing to bike main­te­nance.

If you’re re­ally se­ri­ous about learn­ing, but not ready to en­rol in ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion, have a look at on­line TAFE cour­ses which can of­fer any­thing from busi­ness, beauty, ed­u­ca­tion, ac­count­ing and an­i­mal care, all from the com­fort and ease of your very own home.

Con­ve­nience is key!
