Learn @ DI
At DI, we understand that people have widely differing learning styles but we believe everyone should have an opportunity to learn. We encourage people to recognise their own potential and work towards their personal goals, whether it is learning for fun, towards work or personal development.
We currently offer a variety of educational sessions over the week on a group or individual basis.
Clients are supported at a level according to their specific needs.
We have a variety of tutors and volunteers who bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise to the sessions and encourage further learning.
