About community learning
Welcome to the Community Learning Service
Staffordshire's Community Learning Service provides formal and informal learning for all adults across the County and provides programmes that supports people to gain the skills that they need so that they can progress in the world of work, and family learning courses that are designed to support parents to give their children the best start in life.
The service attracts 4,000 learners each year to a wide programme of accredited and non-accredited learning opportunities. It has been recognised by the 2017 Ofsted Inspection as being a 'good' service and has ambitions to be outstanding.
Community Learning commissions provision through a range of delivery partners to ensure that a wide reach of remote online learning and community-based learning programmes are delivered across the eight districts of Staffordshire.
Whether you are looking to learn something new, gain new skills, need help to find work, start your own business or simply wish to learn something fun for pleasure, then Staffordshire Community Learning Service is here for you.
We offer a wide range of exciting and stimulating short courses for adults aged 19 and above across Staffordshire by offering a mixture of online remote learning and classroom-based learning in local communities.
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 which will bring you new skills, interests and qualifications. Please contact us if you have any queries we can help with.
