Adult Education Programme - Day, Evening & Weekend Courses

Corona Virus

The decision has been taken to cancel all Adult Education Programme Courses as of 17th March 2020 for the foreseeable future.

We are sure you will understand that in these worrying times the health and safety of all our service users and staff is paramount.

We have taken this decision as the current situation continues to change rapidly, and in consideration of high concentrations of learners and staff with vulnerable characteristics attending Adult Education Programme Courses.

The next main term of Adult Education Programme courses will start in September 2020.  Those courses will be available to view and book from early August 2020.

Please note that it is not possible to book for both Adult Education Programme and Active Schools courses at the same time.  You should therefore book for each provider’s course using a separate transaction.  Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
