Breaking down the barriers is the theme of an event to be held at Portree's Aros Community Centre.

On Thursday, 8th December, 11am to 1pm, there is an open invitation to pop along and find out more about the funded and part funded qualifications that can be delivered in Skye.

The Virtual Learning Academy in Invergordon are passionate about breaking down the barriers to learning across the Highlands & Islands. They will be in Portree to deliver an informal presentation about some fully funded and part funded qualifications which can be delivered in Skye.

The organisers of the event say: "It could be for you, your employees, your teenagers or even your grandparents!

"At 11 am we will deliver a short fun presentation informing you of the range of funding options available along with the relevant qualifications. These include: Accounts, IT, Hospitality Supervision, Management, Business Admin and Customer Service. Then there will be an informal chat with tea/coffee and cakes where you can ask questions and meet the tutors."
