Where to enrol and where the classes will be held

Please visit any of our centres:

Family learning

Family learning is free, friendly and fun and it's for the whole family, including carers.

We can help you understand what your children are learning in school and improve your own reading, writing, maths and computer skills to help them with their homework. You can even work towards a nationally recognised qualification in English and/or maths.

We also offer a range of family arts, crafts and health & fitness courses.

Contact us to find out what's on and how to enrol for courses by visiting your nearest Neighbourhood learning centre.

Short courses for groups with learning difficulties and disabilities

We provide a wide range of short courses for groups of people with learning difficulties, disabilities or mental health needs who may not have taken a course for a long time.

These fun, friendly courses include arts and crafts, basic first aid, computer skills, cookery, drama, music, multi media, beauty and complementary therapies, health and fitness. They help people become more confident, make new friends, learn new skills, move on to voluntary or paid work and learn to live independently.

If you would like to join one of our courses or would like to discuss a course for your organisation, please contact us.

Jobs and careers advice

Finding the right job or training isn't easy but we help over 2000 people every year make their dreams come true.

Whether you're finding your first job or looking for promotion, want a new career or are going back to work after having a baby we're here to help. We can also help if you've been made redundant (or are worried about your job) or you're looking for voluntary work or training.

We can help you complete application forms, write a CV and covering letter, learn how to cope with interviews and make your job search work.

Supporting you

If it's been a long time since you were at school or college or you took a class, please don't worry. We know people can be nervous about learning for lots of reasons and we'll do all we can to help you settle in and enjoy yourself.

If you want to start a course but need some extra help (learning support) please contact us to discuss your needs.
