Our autumn 2024 course offer will be available very soon!

Enrol onto a course to improve your wellbeing, bring out your creative talents or enhance your personal and professional development. There are courses in English and maths available, and we offer a range of vocational courses and qualifications from Entry Level to Level 3.

Our courses are now mainly onsite at the Thomas Calton Centre, Alpha Street, SE15 4NX, with a small proportion of courses available online.

Please enrol online by completing our enrolment form where possible. You can also visit the Thomas Calton Centre Monday to Friday 9.30am to 4pm.

Family learning courses

Family learning programmes help adults develop the necessary skills to support their child’s English and maths. They allow families to learn together in a fun relaxed environment while improving wellbeing and increasing cultural awareness.

Bring your child(ren) and participate in various activities from woodwork, pottery, poetry, film, fashion, using a computer, crafts, arts and animation, music, dance, sewing and salsa. We regularly run sessions after school and during half-term and holidays for families to learn a new skill and to take time out to enjoy being creative together. Most family learning courses are free, but some classes charge a £5 materials fee.

We also have courses to help you to support your school-aged child(ren) or grandchild(ren). These courses will enable you to help them do well at school and achieve more by supporting your progress and achievement in English, maths and languages.

Courses run in various venues across the borough, including schools, children’s centres, libraries and voluntary organisations and at the Thomas Calton Centre in Peckham.

If you'd like a course delivered to your venue, email adult.learning@southwark.gov.uk to discuss your ideas.
