Course information

Courses are normally from a single 2 hour session (bite size) up to 10 weekly sessions of 2 hours (tasters). The sessions are for small groups of adults aged over 18, led by an accredited tutor.

Our courses are free for our learners, as we are funded by external bodies committed to creating learning opportunities for adults in our communities. You can read our Neighbourhood Learning success stories to learn about the positive benefits of attending a course.

Helping you take the next step
