Festival of learning

Discover exciting opportunities near you to learn something new or rekindle your passion for an old skill!

Festival of Learning (previously Adult Learners' Week) is the biggest celebration of lifelong learning in England.

Community Learning and Skills are providing 'free taster' sessions and 'have a go' events throughout the county to encourage people to learn something new.  You may be considering taking a course. You may want to unleash the artist in you or get ahead with a new skill in IT.

There is nothing like good English and maths skills to give you brighter prospects.  Whether you need to brush up on the basics or take a fresh look at more challenging problems there will be a course to suit you.

We're confident there's something for everyone, so why not look at our timetable of events (PDF 416KB) that are available from Monday 19th June and see what's on offer in your area?
