Welcome to Wakefield Adult Education Service

Update – 8th April 2021

Following the Government Guidelines Step 1 Road Map, we have been able to return to traditional, face to face, classroom learning in our Centres, for adults from 8th March 2021. Our provision also offers a range of different learning methods to choose from which include blended learning, distance learning and online learning dependent on your requirements and current skill level.

Our Team are in centre and available to support your enrolment and offer you advice and guidance on any enquiry you may have. Our January 2021 brochure has been delivered to households across the district. Haven't seen one and would like one? Let us know and we will be happy to send you one or just contact us for advice on our current provision. We are available to support you in finding the right course to help you to enhance your existing skills, learn new ones or to support your current wellbeing.

Fee Remission is available if you are unemployed or employed and on low wage. We also have financial support available for travel, resources or childcare, so please ask for details.
