Transforming lives and communities through lifelong learning

At Bedford Adult and Community Learning Centre we offer a wide range of exciting and stimulating short courses. Our courses bring together adults, often of different ages and backgrounds, who wish to follow an interest, gain a new skill, take up a new hobby, become healthier and happier or just simply to learn something new.

Learning need not stop when you leave school, college, university or work! There are lots of opportunities for people to continue to learn and develop their skills, whatever their age.

We are committed to providing lifelong education opportunities within the community to encourage as many people as possible to continue to learn.

We have a wide range of courses on offer here in the School and learner’s feedback has told us that they enjoyed the courses, were well supported, valued the experience and achieved things they never thought possible!

There are lots of reasons to join one of our many courses and we hope that the website will help you to find the course which is just right for you. If you’re looking to learn something new or take up a hobby, then look at our current course brochure.
