Where Kent Learns

Where Kent Learns

If you’re looking to better yourself with a new skill or qualification, Kent Adult Education offers a variety of courses throughout the county. We find out more about the classes and subjects currently available, and discover how they can further your abilities, no matter what field you’re interested in.

Kent Adult Education is the heart of adult learning in Kent. As the largest provider, we’ve had almost 20,000 people enjoy a course with us over the last academic year.

With over 4,000 courses for you to enrol upon, we really do have a course that’s perfect for you. Our courses run from Monday to Saturday at various times, from morning to as late as 9.30pm in the evening. We want everyone to find a new hobby, learn a new skill, get fit, get creative and have fun on our courses.

With 15 dedicated adult education centres across the county, from Tunbridge Wells to Dover and Folkestone to Dartford, we have courses that are local to you and convenient for you to get to, with many of our centres in the middle of the town. Plus, we work with around 100 other locations, such as village halls, libraries and schools, to make sure we have the perfect environment and location for everyone in Kent.

Courses are available in a range of subjects too: arts and crafts, business, general studies, GCSEs, health and fitness, language, personal development and photography and computing. Ranging from free tasters to accredited courses, we’re sure that, whether you’re a beginner or someone who wants to excel with an advanced course, we can find a course that’s at the right level for you to flourish.

One of the biggest misconceptions we come across is that potential learners think courses will be too expensive to join. We offer a range of ‘pay as you go’ fitness courses, which start from £5 per session, and there’s no obligation to turn up every week. Our half-day courses can be as little as £25, and full-day Saturday courses are £50; these even usually include materials too! Plus, if your course is £70 or more, we offer the ability for you to pay a 25% deposit and pay the rest in instalments, so it really is easier than you think to enrol and enjoy adult learning.

We’re also really proud that, for the past two years, we’ve scored 9/10 for customer satisfaction. Not only do we think our courses and teaching are fantastic, but our students do too! Here’s what just one of our students said about their experience: “Every aspect of the course has been excellent, enjoyable, informative, well-presented and beneficial.”

If there’s always been that course you’ve thought about doing, or you really want to do more with your spare time, now is the perfect time to take a look and enrol. Our brand new courses launch on May 1 and, with 4,000 courses, over 700 of them at the weekend too, there has never been a better time to start your Kent Adult Education experience.
