Adult Learning Cardiff offer a range of flexible learning opportunities that are designed to support individuals to take their first steps back into learning and to assist them to progress to further learning, training or employment.

These Welsh Government funded courses are offered free to learners and include a range of IT courses as well as courses that assist with the development of skills for those looking for work in childcare, hospitality or retail.

Individuals aged 16 years and above who are eligible to enrol on these courses include:

those who are not currently in education, training or employment and are in receipt of state benefits or support (excluding state retirement pension)

those aged 50 plus who are not in full-time employment.

We also welcome enrolments from those with few or no formal qualifications. Referrals from Third Sector organisations and charities who are supporting individuals back into education are also welcome.

It is not possible for you to enrol online for these courses, so please come along to one of our enrolment events where you will have the opportunity to discuss which course is right for you.

If you want to enrol on one of these courses but you do not meet the eligibility criteria then you can enrol by paying the appropriate fee.

The courses are divided into topics so please read through to find a course that suits you
