About community learning

Welcome to the Community Learning Service

Staffordshire’s Community Learning Service provides informal and formal learning programmes for all Staffordshire adults aged 19+. The Service commissions the provision through a range of delivery partners to achieve a wide offer of online and community-based learning programmes. The Service attracts approx. 4,000 learners each year and has been recognised by the 2017 Ofsted Inspection as being a ‘good’ provider of adult learning.

We offer a wide range of exciting and stimulating short programmes. These courses bring together adults, often of different ages and backgrounds, to follow an interest, gain a new skill or qualification, become healthier or even learn how to help their children with their education.

If this is your first step back into learning, or if you're looking for your next course, you can view the courses here. Please contact us if you have any queries we can help with.
