Smart Skills

SmartSkills is the learning arm of SmartMove, offering informal learning and one-to-one support

Our current courses include:

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Money Skills
  • Maintaining a Successful Tenancy
  • Job Club
  • Safety in the Home
  • Arts and Crafts

In the summer we also run ’Grow Your Own’ sessions at our allotment and ‘Cook and Eat’ courses.

There is also one-to-one support available with reading, writing, computer skills and job searching. We provide tea, coffee and biscuits and can refund bus fares. The courses are free to attend, and partly funded by Calderdale Council’s Adult Learning and a number of companies and charitable trusts. There is a friendly atmosphere and it can be a great way to meet new people.
