The heat is on – polluting our world

What does the phrase ‘protect our environment’ mean to you? Do you just think of it as an issue only for the people who love nature, or do you see it as one of the greatest challenges of our time? This course consists of information pieces, a short story and a poem that explore different aspects of the importance of our environment to our everyday lives. (Course finishes at the end of November. Certificates sent out in the first week of December.)

The power of words and images

We are bombarded with words and images every day. This course helps us to think a little more about where words come from, how they are used to manipulate us, and how advertisers play with words and pictures to persuade us to buy things. You will also read how cartoonists use pictures to make statements about the world, and analyse some cartoons. Complete this course to improve your critical and visual literacy skills. (Course finishes end Jan 2020. Certificates sent out in first week of Feburary.)
