How to enrol on adult education courses

After you have chosen what course you want to do, you need to enrol.
Our centres are open

Our centres are open. We continue to offer a wide range of online classes. Many courses offer a blended approach with both onsite and online learning available.

To ensure the safety of learners and staff we continue to follow government guidance. Read the measures we have put in place to keep you safe.

To make sure you get a place on your course, you should enrol before it starts. But you can enrol on a course up to three weeks after the start date if spaces are available.
