Dales Resilience - A programme to help you get into work

Be part of sharing the Yorkshire Dales’ fascinating story.  Learn more about the people, landscape and traditions of this place.

Local arts and heritage charity, Settle Stories, has received funding from the European Social Fund to deliver an engaging short course targeted at those who are currently not working. The course delivered weekly over four sessions will offer you a structured, fun way to improve and gain new skills to enable your successful path to employment.

This course will give you exclusive access to the archive of one of Yorkshire’s greatest journalists, W.R. Mitchell, who was the editor of the Dalesman for over 20 years. His extraordinary archive is sadly not publicly accessible.

You can help change that. Be part of creating a new touring exhibition of the images from this unique collection and save the precious heritage of the Yorkshire Dales before it is lost forever.

Through this programme you will learn to develop your skills in:

  • Research
  • Using computers
  • Interviewing
  • Writing
  • Speaking and listening
  • General Administration

At the end of the programme you will receive a certificate of achievement. A reference will be available on request.

Following a hugely successful course in Settle and an amazing feature in the Yorkshire Post, we are proud to be running this course again in Skipton.

Dates:  Tue 14 November every Tuesday until the 5th December. Each session will start at 10.30am and finish at 4.30pm

Venue: Skipton Library, High St, Skipton, BD23 1JX

Lunch is included and your travel expenses will be covered.
