We provide part-time day and evening courses in several subjects at centres across Newham. ​Our courses are for anyone aged 19+.

We offer a wide range of adult education courses including ESOL, childcare, beauty, arts and crafts, languages and cookery.

When you sign up to a course we will assess your skills to make sure we put you in the correct class. We also offer extra help if you have a learning difficulty.
