Community centre courses

Study to suit you with short, part-time courses that tailor learning to your needs. Available in a range of subjects, you can study entry-level courses, improve your English, maths or IT skills, and progress to higher level courses in Teaching or Health and Social Care.

Looking to learn in your community? There’s also our Deacon House, Enfield, Joseph Priestley and Rothwell community centres. If you want to come in one day a week, that’s also fine too.
