Community learning general information
Bracknell Forest Council receives funding from the Skills Funding Agency to provide adult learning courses. To be eligible to attend a course you need to be aged 19 years (as at 31st August 2016) or over and have been resident in the European Union for three years or more.
See the community learning courses page for more details of the courses we have available.
Our three year development plan (PDF, 239kb) was written in 2014 and explains what the Community Learning service is aiming to achieve.
General adult learning
Offering you opportunities to discover learning for pleasure, inspiration, health, well-being and personal development. Our programme includes computer skills, arts, crafts, cookery and much more.
Opportunities for parents and carers to discover ways to support their child’s development whilst learning new skills themselves. There are a wide range of courses that include qualifications as well as informal sessions to encourage family interaction. Contact your local children’s centre for more details.
Skills for work
Opportunities to develop your skills for employment. Many of these are free to Jobseekers. Drop in to the Job Club at Bracknell Open Learning Centre, held every Thursday 9.30am to 4pm for careers advice, job search resources and to discuss the courses available.
