ADULT COMMUNITY LEARNING - Expand Your Mind, Change Your World

Our Adult Community Learning programme offers a range of creative learning opportunities across arts, crafts and digital technologies. The courses are short in length and ideal for people who have no experience of adult learning or for those who wish to return to learning. 


Continued learning as an adult has an impact on many areas of life. ... Learning new skills and interests has huge benefits. The acquisition of new hobbies, skills and personal development interests lead to increased confidence, reduced loneliness, improved health and mental health and overall happiness.  

Community Learning is the cornerstone of adult learning. Without it, many adults – including some of our hardest to reach, vulnerable or isolated residents – that access it every year, would not progress into further learning and work or be able to cope with what life throws at them.

This year, for academic year 2021-22, we have introduced our Creative Skills Passport. The passport records progress in skills, knowledge development and achievement for each learner who wishes to participate. Achievement is measured at 3 levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold and provides evidence of progression for individual learners.

"I have really enjoyed doing the adult learning courses. I have learned different skills from needle felting, to rope crafts, wood crafts and decoupage. I have mental health issues and these courses have really made such a positive difference. The courses are great and they help with anxiety, you meet new people and learn new skills"
