Are you an adult with a learning disability? Do you want to learn new skills? All our courses teach English, Maths and Communication Skills within a fun and practical setting. These courses are suitable for people who live independently or in supported living units.

What courses do we offer?

We teach English and Maths through a range of different courses including Cookery, Art, French, Money and Work Skills, and Gardening. We also offer specific courses in English and Maths. As well as this, they encompass social interaction, communication skills, and general wellbeing. To see which courses are publicly advertised, please click here.

Some classes are held in day centres for their clients. If you would like more information on hosting your own class, please use the contact details below.

How can I enrol?

You will not be able to enrol on to these courses through the website. This is because each student will have to be individually assessed to see if they qualify for these courses. For more information on this or to enrol, please contact Gaynor Crayden on 07821 341712 (Monday-Thursday).

Will there be any help?

Many of our courses have a trained volunteer who will help you, along with the tutor. However, we cannot guarantee that each class will have a volunteer and cannot provide one-to-one tuition. You are very welcome to bring your own support worker/carer to help you.

Students will be expected to make their own travel arrangements.

Will I have to pay?

The majority of our classes are free, but you will need to bring your own folder, paper and pen to each lesson. Some classes, such as Art and Cookery, will have a small charge attached for equipment, such as paint or ingredients.

How can I progress?

You may wish to move on to a full English or Maths Functional Skills class. Also, there is a buddying scheme through Learning Links, if you wish attend a non-ALD Community Learning class.
