Where Kent Learns

Where Kent Learns

If you’re looking to acquire a new skill, Kent Adult Education can help you discover your calling and unearth a newfound passion for learning. We find out how the institution, which spans such towns as Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks, provides a quality curriculum in the Garden of England

Kent Adult Education is the heart of adult learning in Kent. As the largest provider, we have 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 now, we really do have a course that’s perfect for you. Our courses run from Monday to Saturday at various times of day, 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, crafts, business, general studies, GCSEs, health and fitness, language, personal development, photography and computing. Ranging from free tasters to accredited courses, we’re sure that whether you are 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 that courses will be too expensive to join. We offer a range of ‘pay as you go’ fitness courses that start from £5 per session, and there is 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 have 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 think 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 are available to enrol on now, and with 4,000 courses, over 700 of which are at the weekend too, there has never been a better time to start your Kent Adult Education experience.
