Adult Courses

Approximately 2,200 part time students enjoyed our adult programme last year and we hope that you will also be inspired to join us. There are many challenging and stimulating courses available as evening classes, outreach courses, daytime classes or Saturday workshops.

You can be assured that the course you decide to take will provide a good experience supported by well-qualified teachers working in partnership with the voluntary, private and public sector.

No matter where you are in life, our Community Learning and Leisure programme can help you and your family to develop the skills you need through high quality, accessible and affordable courses with an excellent range to choose from.

We offer a wide range of courses through Learndirect so whether you want to succeed in your current job, develop new skills and confidence to get a new one, or simply learn something new, we can help. We also deliver NVQs and Skills for Life courses through Train to Gain which enables employers to improve the skills of their staff and volunteers.

See our Student Charter for our promise that we will do our best for you. The charter outlines exactly what all of our students can expect and all students receive a copy at their first class.

How to apply

When you have decided on your course you will need to fill out an enrolment form and attach two photos of yourself.

The registration fee is £5 and is payable just once in an academic year, no matter how many courses you take. All students enrolling on a Learndirect course are required to produce one form of identification such as a driver’s licence, household bill or passport.
