Our 2020/2021 brochure is now available
St Ives Adult Learning will be furloughed for the spring term 2021 so no courses will be running during this time. We will update this website as soon as we re-open.
COVID 19 systems are in place for our learners and staff, including enhanced cleaning, sanitising stations, one-way systems, socially distanced classrooms, face coverings required in communal areas such as corridors, seating plans, class bubbles etc. Please contact us if you have specific questions about our COVID preparations.
We’re passionate about providing everyone in and around St Ives with the widest possible range of learning activities, and this year we have over 50 NEW courses to choose from. Over 1200 adult learners enjoyed our part-time courses last year and we hope that you will decide to join them during the coming year. There are many valuable and interesting courses on offer, as evening classes, daytime classes and as part of our Saturday workshops. We are committed to the concept of Lifelong Learning and have much experience in providing courses suited to a very wide age range of adults. Whatever your reason for joining, you can be assured that the course you decide to take will provide a high quality experience supported by well-qualified tutors. If you cannot find the course you are looking for please contact us with your suggestions – listening to you really helps us deliver what you need!
Due to current lockdown restrictions we are not taking bookings for this term’s courses at present. Our full spring term programme is in preparation and will be available by early December.
