New learning centre sure to be on the ball

FIRST Minister Alex Salmond and Sir Tom Farmer have opened a new community learning centre based at Hibs' Easter Road Stadium.

The Hibernian Learning Centre, set up by the Hibernian Community Foundation in partnership with Jewel & Esk College, is designed to reach a wide range of people and offer them a variety of courses.

The centre, opened yesterday, is a place where people who are nervous of education, or who might otherwise not have access to learning, can take the first steps to develop IT, literacy and numeracy skills.
