Adult and community education

Adult education

We provide part-time day and evening courses in several subjects at centres across Newham. ​Our courses are for anyone aged over 16.

Part-time courses

We offer a wide range of adult education courses including 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.

You can find details of all the part time courses we offer on the Newham Adult Learning Service website.

Guidance and information on further education courses and funding is also available on GOV.UK.
