Potential adult learners get a chance to check out the Hants Learning Network Association | The Register/Advertiser

Those who were thinking about upgrading their education got a chance to see what it’s like during open visits at the Hants Learning Network Association (HLNA) in Windsor earlier in October."

After many years in the work force fifty-eight year old John Wilson decided with the help from the Hants Adult Learning Network Association. The association is very flexible and has enabled Wilson to tackle his task at his own pace. He is also getting help studying for work courses that he requires.

Katharine McCoubrey, executive director of the HLNA, said the open visits, a first for the organization, were aimed at giving people a chance to see first-hand what they offer.

“They got to come in while our regular classes were happening so that they could talk to our teachers, our students and find out a little more about,” McCoubrey said. “A few people came to check this out and we had others call in who maybe couldn’t come in person.”

This was the first time the HLNA has tried this approach, and McCoubrey said she was excited to have one participant sign up on the day they visited.

The open visits took place on Oct. 3, 5 and 11 throughout the day.

 “One of our biggest challenges is getting the word out there about what we do,” she said. “If you don’t know this service is here, you might not know you could benefit from coming.”

HLNA’s programs are free of charge, with flexible hours available.

An open house for HLNA is planned for Nov. 24, which is open to the general public and includes a ticket auction.
