    What People Say

    Following government advice regarding the avoidance of non-essential social contact, we have taken the decision to cancel all adult learning courses with immediate effect in order to protect the health of our learners and our tutors. We will update the information on this website as the situation develops. Thank you.

    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!

    You can enrol here at any time or you can contact us Monday to Thursday, 10.00am to 2.00pm, and Monday and Tuesday 6.30pm to 9.30pm (see term dates and office opening times).
