At Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service, we are committed to supporting our residents as they learn new skills and gain accredited qualifications.
We are busy getting ready for the start of our 2020–21 academic year in September; and preparing our centres to ensure the safety of our staff and learners.
We’re currently running our courses remotely (face-to-face teaching is suspended while our learning centres are closed).
Our summer online courses include work skills courses and select courses from our nationally recognised community learning programme.
Our summer courses range from Excel charts to creative learning. We will be adding more courses soon. In the meantime, our job skills courses start on 2 July: browse and enrol on a free course. Some courses include live tutorials using Zoom or other webinar applications. You might need to download the required webinar application to your device before the course starts.
Trying to get a job? We can help you. We have free courses, tips and one-to-one advice sessions for Waltham Forest residents.
We have a collection of wellbeing and self-care tips and activities for children and adults. Our creativity, learning and wellbeing page is packed with resources to keep you and your family learning.
We have virtual English conversation clubs almost every day (except Sunday). Our clubs are free. To join a club, please complete our online booking form.
We train volunteers to lead our English Conversation Clubs. If you would like to volunteer with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are remotely supporting and recruiting apprentices.
Employers: email us to find out how you and your staff can benefit from our apprenticeship scheme.
The new Rapid Employment Service can also help you to get a new job: from improving your CV to completing applications.
