URGENT – tutors needed asap

I’ve recently made a link with Tesco Extra in Swiney Way Toton (NG9) to use their new community room. This room is a lovely teaching room with 4 PCs access to the internet and free refreshments.

We are about to start one course there on Tuesday afternoons and today Tesco have been back in touch asking if we can offer other courses on Monday and or Friday mornings before Christmas. They also have some evening slots available.
As this is a new community space I think the sorts of courses that may go down well are craft courses, art courses, social media or singing .. the types of courses that will engage new, younger students. However, I am willing to consider any suggestions.

If you have a course of 13 or 14 hours length ready to go please get in touch with me asap.
This branch of Tesco has a community noticeboard, a FB page and access to 7000 households via local magazines; so I’m hopeful of recruiting 12 people.
