For work and your wellbeing

Adults from all sorts of backgrounds enrol on our courses. We offer free additional support to learn with us. We can help you gain a qualification that is recognised by employers. You can learn a new skill, start your own business, improve your wellbeing, or develop your creativity.

We can help you find courses that are right for you: from art, craft and gardening to business and digital skills. We have a variety of courses in the daytime, evening and at weekends. Some courses happen throughout the year, some are short, and some courses are over several weeks.
