Published 14th August 2023

Just in time for the new academic year, Inspire have launched our brand new Adult Learning Course Guide, with hundreds of free and low-cost courses for adults to study in Ashfield, across Nottinghamshire and online.

You’ll have probably spotted our mini-guide delivered through your letterbox, which contains details of courses in your local area – they’re hard to miss, as they’re bright pink! But if you’d like to travel further afield, or just want to see what else we offer, drop into your local library to pick up a full guide, or view all our courses online.

Whether you want to progress your career with a recognised qualification or are just looking to have fun and pick up a new hobby, Inspire’s adult learning courses are for everyone. There’s a huge range of subjects available – from recognised qualifications in Maths, IT, science and English, to local history, languages, music and arts and crafts.

Update your workpace skills with spreadsheet training, decorate some tasty cupcakes, learn how to set up your own business, practice meditation


and much more: the choice is yours.We also offer free maths and budgeting classes through Multiply, specifically for those who aren’t confident with numbers. Depending on your circumstances, many of our courses will be free or low-cost, with accredited courses fully funded for those in receipt of certain benefits, so you can try as many as you like.Courses will be taking place at our newly refurbished and re-opened Kirkby-in-Ashfield Library and Learning Centre - if you get the chance, you'll definitely want to drop in for a visit.

As an Ofsted registered Grade 2 'Good' provider, as well as winner of the 2020 Tes FE Award for Community Learning Provider of the Year, you’ll enjoy a fun, friendly, high-quality learning experience. For those who need more flexibility, there’s online and distance learning courses, designed for you to learn from the comfort of your own home.

All our courses can be booked online, or through Ask Inspire. Keep an eye on our website, as we’ll be adding new courses throughout the year. Can't see the course you're looking for? Keep checking back on this page, and sign up for our emails to be notified when more courses are added!
