Adult learning

News release: 20 December 2017

The new year is the perfect time to gain a professional qualification, learn new skills or enjoy a different hobby; and the council's adult learning programme is designed for all ages and abilities.

Courses include gardening and floristry, art, languages, maths, childcare, IT, cookery and photography. There are also specific courses for over-65s, as well as people with learning difficulties and disabilities.

The council's open days are a chance for residents to find information, advice and guidance on courses:

  • Thursday 4 January from 10am to 2pm at Brookfield Adult Learning Centre
  • Friday 5 January from 10am to 2pm at Harlington Adult Learning Centre
  • Saturday 6 January from 10am to 2pm at Brookfield Adult Learning Centre

Council David Simmonds, Hillingdon Council's Cabinet Member for Education and Children's Services said: "We have hundreds of nationally-recognised adult learning courses available to Hillingdon residents. Our courses are more than just learning: they are designed to inspire you, build your independence and boost your confidence, whilst giving you the chance to socialise, relax and unwind. If you need help choosing a course to best suit you, come along to one of our open days and find out more about options to study."

From January, there will also be free courses available to help people improve their emotional health and wellbeing. Classes will encourage people to find ways to de-stress, increase self-esteem, meet new people, and find support to improve emotional health.

Courses include understanding depression and anxiety, yoga, meditation and relaxation, and empowering parents to improve family life.
