A HASTINGS-based project held an open day on Monday for people interested in gaining life skills, English and maths qualifications, and employability skills.

Finding Futures works with people of any age who need help and support with their learning.

Mayor Alan Roberts and council leader Jeremy Birch attended the event and to celebrate the launch of the Finding Futures Ambassadors, a scheme set up by a group of learners. They are responsible for tours of the service, explaining how it works, and sharing their experiences and how it has helped them to move forward with their lives. Cllr Birch said: “Finding Futures plays a vital role providing basic skills often to people whose first experience of education wasn’t successful. I hope the project goes from strength to strength.”
