If you’re looking to learn something new, brush up on your skills, meet new people or improve your job prospects then our Adult Education Programme is for you. The day, evening and weekend classes start up again in September with a range of subjects for adults aged 16 and over across Edinburgh. The numerous classes include; art, crafts, creative writing history, computing, cookery, health and fitness, languages, music, drama, walks and talks and much more.   

Our courses can help you to develop confidence and keep mentally and physically active as well as acquiring new skills. Research shows that people who are in lifelong learning are more likely to be employed, to remain in work and to be involved in their communities. It truly is about learning for life and it’s never too late to start.  

New classes include – motorcycle maintenance, bass guitar, iPad, iPhoto and iMovie, Italian Christmas cooking and many more.

Also on offer are Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) courses at Higher and Unit levels, run by Edinburgh College.

Cllr Paul Godzik, Education Convener, said: “We have a fantastically varied and interesting programme, which has been designed by our adult education team to meet the needs of people of all ages and abilities. These courses, which you can now book online, offer something for everyone and they’re a great chance to meet new people and learn something different.

“Plenty of flexibility is built into the programme as to
where and when people can study, with opportunities to take classes at different schools and community centres across the city, during the day, evenings and weekends.”
