About us

We strive to deliver high-quality learning experiences to support the personal, social, health and economic development of our residents and communities. We create a safe and healthy place where people have choice, control, and good employment opportunities. 

We work in partnership with Medway Council and we're funded primarily through the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and learner fees.

Adult and community learning

We have provided adult and community learning courses and nationally accredited qualifications in Medway for more than 20 years.

We operate through a bank of qualified, experienced teaching professionals together with contractual arrangements with several partner organisations.

We offer specialist expertise in certain disciplines which support people to learn new skills for leisure, returning to employment, improving their English and maths and their health and wellbeing. 

Benefits of adult learning

Keeping your mind and body active is important for general health and wellbeing. Discovering something new, developing a skill or simply meeting new people and socialising are perfect for keeping your mind alert, relaxing and for creating new opportunities for personal development. 

You'll also improve your career prospects, make new friends, and enjoy your precious leisure time.

Update your skills

Everyone can benefit from updating their skills or trying something new. It’s never too late, even if you have not been in a classroom for some time, you’ll be in good company. 

In addition to the centre-based sessions, we have a range of online sessions that have flexible start dates and times and more courses added throughout the year. 

We hope you'll discover something of interest in our programme. 

Our tutors

Our tutors are experienced, knowledgeable, dedicated and friendly. We can promise a thoroughly enjoyable time with them, and with your fellow learners. We deliver our content at a pace suited to you in a supportive environment where great friendships are made. 

We look forward to helping you to discover, learn and achieve something new.
