Bus drivers found out more about adult education courses when staff from Uxbridge College visited their depot for a one day teaching and information session.
Uxbridge Bus Station played host to the workshop run on Wednesday 23 May as part of Adult Learners' Week.
The depot off Bakers Road includes a training room with seven computers, donated by Uxbridge College after a recent refurbishment, where the training day was held.
Bus drivers and catering and support staff could have a quick lesson on how to use the internet or word processing software, and find out about courses which fit in with their working hours.
Both visits were part of the national Adult Learners' Week, held to encourage people of all ages to consider starting training in a whole range of areas.
Teresa Cannon, from Uxbridge College's Employer Services department, which arranges training for business, said: "The visit was part of the work we do with local businesses, both to train staff in the skills they need in their jobs, and to let them know the general opportunities on offer.
"Many people don't realise that there is loads of training on offer which can be arranged around their work commitments - often people can be taught in the workplace and can do a lot of their learning online. There are also free training schemes on offer, including IT, and Health and Social Care courses under the Government-funded Train to Gain scheme."
Syed Ali Hussain, Depot General Manager of First Uxbridge Bus Garage, and the Hayes depot, said: "First is investing heavily in creating a culture of Lifelong Learning among all our staff - not just for skills our staff need in the workplace, but as part of a wider commitment to looking after them, keeping them motivated and feeling valued.
"The key is to get people interested and visits from organisations such as Uxbridge College is a great way to do it."
