Adult education course guide


Welcome to Wakefield Adult Education

During this challenging time we have continued to support over 550 learners to successfully complete their qualifications.   The team have recently surveyed our learners and almost 93% said they were likely or very likely to recommend us to friends and family.  

Learners have told us:

"It is very good for every aspect of learning, good tutors, making new friends and very friendly and helpful staff"

"Commitment of the service to provide meaning all through these challenging times"

Check out our online directory to see if there are any courses of interest to you. The new brochure will be delivered to your homes in early September but our courses do fill up very quickly, so beat the rush – download the 2020 Course Guide.

Online learning

We are offering FREE online Level 2 Certificate courses. We have over 25 courses in a wide range of subjects from Customer Service, Business Administration and Team Leading to Safe Handling of Medication, Care Planning and Nutrition and health.

If you are furloughed, why not take this opportunity to enhance your skills or learn new ones – we can help to find you the right course for you.  Since lockdown 18% of our learners had been furloughed, one learner said "so doing a course was a good use of my time"
