Welcome to the Adult Education Programme 

Edinburgh's Adult Education Programme (A E P) has been running for over 100 years, offering day, evening and weekend courses to 10,000 plus adults per year.  

Over 100 courses are now running online, outdoors and in our community centre venues.

We are delighted to be offering a spring term programme which will start in May 2022.

The courses will be available to view and book online from Monday 21st March online and by telephone.

Telephone enrolments: 9.30am – 1pm

(0131) 556 7978 or (0131) 469 3003 

Please be aware we are still running a reduced programme so not everything previously on offer will be available.

Time has been spent ensuring all health and safety issues have been taken into consideration for a safe return to venues. Guidelines will be issued to those who enrol on a course prior to it starting, in line with any current guidance.
