Enrolling online

Before you start, please check if you need to do an assessment for the course(s) you want to do.

For most of our art, craft, fashion, gardening and community or family learning courses you normally do not need to do an assessment. This means, you can book these courses by noting the course code and phoning us on 020 8496 2974. You can also enrol using our course finder website (instructions are below).

Free assessments

For English, maths and courses where you can gain a formal qualification, you will need to do a free assessment with us before you can enrol.

Your feedback

Our course finder is a system for learner enrolment, information and certificates. It will allow us to enrol you quicker than before and also put you in control of your own information if you create an individual account. This is part of the Council’s ongoing commitment to skills and learning.

We are still developing our online course finder and making sure that everything works as you need it to. If you have any problems using the online course finder, please phone us on 020 8496 2974 or email us.
