  • KENT ADULT EDUCATION Overview Image

"We offer everyone an opportunity to learn something new or gain qualifications from over 3,500 courses, taught by inspiring tutors."

Overview

Kent Adult Education provides an extensive programme of courses to meet the demand of communities in Kent with classes available during the daytime, evenings and weekends.

For the 2017/18 Academic year our main course categories are as follows:

  1. The Arts
  2. Craft
  3. Languages incl. BSL
  4. Fitness & Wellbeing
  5. History & Genealogy
  6. Counselling & Psychology
  7. Specialist Learning
  8. Teaching & Learning
  9. Business & IT
  10. Writing & Literature
  11. English, maths & ESOL

We help our students get the most out of the time they have with us - which means different things for people. Some of our learners join us to develop a skill for business such as bookkeeping, or gaining a qualification in beauty treatments. These courses will be sufficiently demanding to ensure our learners stand the best possible chance of progressing in their careers.

For some, taking a class isn’t about academic rigour. Many people come to us looking to practice a hobby such as watercolour or photography. For our hobbyist learners we help them progress to the best of their abilities, but the emphasis is also on enjoying the classes. Our tutors foster great relations with their students and make the classes a fun, social experience as well as a learning one.

Whatever your needs, we have a course to suit you. Whether you’re looking to progress in business, communicate in a different language on holiday, or just try something new, have a look through our course listings and open your eyes to a bright future.

You’re going to need a bigger bucket list.

Student Life

Kent Adult Education provides a programme of courses based on District Council areas which will:

  • Maximise access to community learning for adults bringing new opportunities and improving lives whatever people's circumstances
  • Promote social renewal by bringing local communities together to experience the joy of learning and the pride that comes with achievement
  • Maximise the impact of community learning on the social and economic well-being of individuals, families and communities

These local programmes will support the core aims of Kent County Council set out in "Bold Steps for Kent" - to help the Kent economy grow, to put the citizen in control and to tackle disadvantage. Programmes will contribute to key public policy priorities in areas such as Health and Wellbeing, support for families, volunteering, community resilience and employment.

Kent Adult Education will work with local communities across the KCC area to provide a vibrant, diverse and challenging range of learning opportunities accessible to as many adults as possible in terms of location, timing and price.
