Brush up your skills in Adult Learners’ Week

Adult education courses are a great way to learn something new, improve your skills and increase your employment chances. To find out what’s available you can contact the team, pick up a brochure or visit the Council website to find out more.

Whether you are looking to improve your skills, take a vocational course or start a new hobby, Wakefield Council's Adult Education service has over 500 courses a year to help you on your way.

Some courses may be free to people who are not in work or on low incomes and there is also help available with childcare to encourage as many people as possible to sign up.

It is also easy to enrol on one of the courses by visiting the adult education website at www.wakefield.gov.uk/AdultEducation where you can find information on the options available or you can drop into your local centre for advice.
