Our fantastic summer term programme for 2022 is packed with opportunities to inspire you with courses for work, life and leisure. 

You’ll find community and family learning courses and adult funded accredited courses for those aged 19+ as well as our Inspire Learning College courses for young people aged 16-24. There's even distance learning options for anyone who needs more flexibility with their studies to fit with work, life, family or caring commitments.

Courses in libraries and online

Join us on community and family learning courses at your local library or community venue – or check out our online courses, designed for you to learn from the comfort of your own home.

Whether you want to fit in a new hobby, or gain a recognised qualification, our courses are short enough to remove the pressure of a huge commitment, but still offer a high-quality learning experience. They’re fun and friendly, and you don’t need any skills or qualifications to take part. 

Low cost or FREE*

Courses are low cost or free* if you’re in receipt of eligible benefits and our adult-funded level 1 and 2 courses are fully or part funded providing an affordable way to add accredited qualifications to your cv.

Brush up on basic skills and knowledge in science, technology, engineering, maths and English, discover a new hobby or interest, improve your health and wellbeing, or develop your skills for employment. You can even get free* careers and benefits advice.

Learn a new language, experiment with art, get creative with writing, crafts or photography, or get fit and flexible.

You can also learn whilst spending quality time with the family with our family learning courses**. They’re fun and free for all the family!
