Online coursesIf you are short of time or cannot commit to a weekly course, instead try an online course at a time that suits you. You could soon be learning a new language, accounting skills or how to use the latest computer software - all for free.
To register, all you need is access to the internet and a Newham library card.
Go to the Library resources available online page to find out more about the online courses and how to register.
English and maths
All our English and maths courses are free for everyone.
To enrol on a course we will assess you at one of our adult education centres. We will then be able to offer you a place on an appropriate course where the teacher will discuss and plan with you what skills you would like to work on.
All courses are part-time with a variety of lesson times available throughout the day. Courses are normally 12 weeks long unless stated otherwise.
English for speakers of other languages (ESOL)
We also offer unit certificates for the Gateway Qualifications Entry Level Award and Level 1 Award in English for Reading, Speaking and Listening and Writing.
All our courses include English, maths and soft skills development. For complete beginners who want to learn how to read and write, we also run specialised courses.
English and maths courses
Courses range from Entry Level qualifications, Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills, through to GCSE level.
We tailor courses to suit your learning needs so you can achieve your very best. If you have a learning difficulty, such as dyslexia, we can offer extra help.
