Adult Learning

Take part in the National Learner Survey!

Worcestershire County Council Libraries and Learning Service provide a range of part time adult learning day and evening courses. Whatever your age or background, everyone is welcome to access adult learning activities that are designed to develop personal skills and open new doors for you to gain new experiences.

The Adult and Community Learning team travel to venues all over the county where people may not have easy access to adult learning through established education centres, such as colleges. We work in informal settings, using venues such as libraries, church halls, community centres, children's centres and school halls as bases for our courses.

Will you get a qualification?

Our aim is to help you get what you want from your course.  For some subjects (e.g. job seeking and confidence building) accreditation is automatically included as part of the course.  As well as setting your own targets, you will be supported to build a portfolio for assessment which will help you gain formal recognition of your skills.  For other courses, accreditation may be offered as an optional element.  You will be able to discuss this with your tutor to decide what will be right for you.

How can you find out more?

This page has a list of all of our current course profiles which you can download and browse. Otherwise, your local library is a good place to find out what is going on in your area.  They will be able to tell you not only what they are able to offer themselves, but also what else is available in your local area.  Each library can also access details of courses at other libraries in the county, so will be able to refer you to a course elsewhere if you are happy to travel a bit further afield. You can always call us or email us using the contact details at the bottom of this page.
