Sign up now for adult learning courses

Enrolment is now open for adult learning classes in the borough.

The spring programme from the council’s community learning and skills service (CLASS) offers a variety of courses, from art, craft and design, health and exercise, cookery and healthy eating, to qualifications in basic skills and support for adults into work with maths, English/ESOL and digital skills.

This term there is a new programme of employability courses to support adults with job searches and a leisure programme supports learners with their health and wellbeing.

Councillor Christine Hulme, lead member for children’s services, lifelong learning and skills, said: “The new year is often a time when people look to take up a new hobby or learn a new skill. Our adult learning programme offers a great variety of classes, daytime and evening, with something to suit everyone.

“Have a browse through our course brochure to see what’s available. You may even learn some new skills which you can add to your CV to help with job hunting.”

Courses are delivered at The Curve and Slough libraries, with most free for the unemployed or low paid workers. 

The CLASS team support local partners who deliver creative courses such as media, spectator safety and community interpreting.

Sign up online from Slough Community Learning's website.

To enrol on a course, which are held in-person, with some online, you have to attend an assessment session. This will be about the subject you’re interested in and allows the team to offer you the course at the level that best suits you.

Leisure courses can be booked online and do not need an assessment.

Please call 01753 476611 for more information on how to book an assessment.

Courses start from the end of January.
