    Ready to put a spring in your step? Enrol on an adult learning course today!

    Oxfordshire Adult Learning (OAL) are excited to bring a suite of new part-time courses across the county in time for the spring and summer seasons!

    Starting from April, learners can get involved in a wide range of hands-on activities and help them to discover new hobbies, rediscover and develop old skills, or even start a path towards a completely new career.

    From guitar lessons to Italian bread making, to say there’s something for everyone may be a bit of a cliché but it’s certainly no exaggeration! It has a wider variety of subject areas than ever before, including new specialist classes such as genealogy and astrology, and where courses become very popular, OAL aims to put on more classes to help meet the demand.

    Classes are designed with modern day routines in mind, with many taking place weekly in the evenings to avoid clashes with work and the school run.

    The new OAL spring prospectus is out now!

    Oxfordshire Adult Learning is also working within local communities to help them reengage with learning, with new projects in 2018 already well underway:
    Oxfordshire Online is an exciting new programme in partnership with Oxfordshire Libraries to help local residents improve their digital and online skills. Courses include buying and selling on auction sites; effective job searching; managing money with banking apps; and overcoming your fears when using different devices.
    The Carer’s Project, in partnership with Carers Oxfordshire, is exclusively for adult carers who are looking after someone, but want to access free practical sessions that support their development. Carers Oxfordshire can also contribute towards part-time hobby courses offered by Oxfordshire Adult Learning.
    • Would you like to make a difference in your community? There are plenty of volunteering opportunities that Oxfordshire Adult Learning can help you with, plus lots of opportunities for training.
    • Oxfordshire Adult Learning is also part of the Oxfordshire Learning Network, the county’s Community Learning Trust that funds different projects from a range of providers and charities.

    Interested in improving your English language or maths skills, or maybe both? Making sure you have the right GCSEs or level of English language skills is important for work and in life. With Oxfordshire Adult Learning, you can enrol on a short course and it could even be free.

    Whatever you are looking to do, whatever skills you want to improve, Oxfordshire Adult Learning can help make it a reality!
