Everyone has a different understanding of what Lifelong Learning actually is.

For some it’s about learning a new skill for work.  For others it’s about keeping fit and healthy. You might want to learn a new language or you might want to produce your first oil painting. Families with children of all ages have the chance to learn new things together

The great thing about Lifelong Learning is that you can do all of these things and more. As part of our service, we offer learners impartial, confidential information, advice and guidance, tailored to individual needs and aspirations and helping all to succeed in their chosen programmes and next step progression.

This year over 11,000 people have enrolled to do courses across the borough.

Each year over 650 courses are available to choose from. What course are you going to do?
