Learner Comments / Case Study

"I am very impressed with Cumbria Learning & Skills, their ability to adapt and offer courses online in such a short space of time is absolutely spot on! Being able to continue with my learning has really helped me to keep to my healthy exercise routine during lockdown. As I live alone it has been lovely to be able to keep in contact with my tutor and be part of a class."

"Terry was referred through the Cardiac Rehabilitation Programme at Westmorland General Hospital. He wanted to increase his knowledge of how to manage his condition as he had no confidence in his aerobic capabilities. The Healthy Hearts sessions helped learner to grow in confidence, to become capable of managing his own condition and to be able to challenge himself physically. He progressed onto attending Gym sessions at Kendal Leisure Centre unaided and to walking uphill again, which he had avoided due to his condition."

"Still trying out my hills & skills-navigated my way around Silver Howe and Lang Howe last weekend with Sal, all went very well until I lead us into a "forest" of dead ferns and dead trees(apparently I learned later that it was an old Juniper tree plantation!).Any how remembered your advice, kept my head and followed a downward beck to the valley bottom, so still live to tell the tale! As you are probably aware a few of your group have got together calling ourselves "Community Hikers "and have/are planning a few excursions about one every 2 months and have a WhatsApp by the same name."
