Information, Advice and Guidance

At Adult Learning we are committed to providing you with high quality information and advice about learning opportunities with us. We will also signpost you to other agencies like the National Careers Service, which offers free guidance to adults relating to learning and work.

Are you thinking of enrolling on one of our courses?

For each course we provide a Course Information Sheet (CIS) to help you pick the right course for you. The CIS will tell you if you need any skills, experience or qualifications to join the course or if it is for complete beginners. It will also give you details of what you can expect to learn and if you need to bring anything with you to your first class.

To access a CIS online, click on Courses. Once you have found a course that you are interested in, you will see the course information displayed on the screen. If you don’t find all the information you need, please phone us on 01296 382403 and our staff will answer your questions or put you in touch with our curriculum specialists for further information or advice.
