About Camden Adult Community Learning

Learn something new for work, for everyday life or just for fun. 

Our mission

We aim to:

  • Encourage and support adults making their first steps back into learning
  • Work in partnership with the local colleges and groups. They provide the locations for learning programmes, enabling us to reach those most in need and least likely to engage

Our work is underpinned by inclusive learning and approaches that recognise the diversity of our community.

What to expect from Camden Adult Community Learning

Classes are informal. Learners are supported by tutors experienced in teaching adults and learning is tailored to meet individual needs and priorities. 

Before joining a Camden adult community course we will give you:

  • Advice about which course(s) are right for you
  • Information about what you will learn on your chosen course(s)
  • An assessment to find out if the course is right for you, what you already know and what your learning priorities are and if you need extra support

When you are on a course you will get:

  • An individual learning plan so that you learn what is important to you
  • Regular feedback from your tutor on how you’re progressing and how you can improve
  • Information about what you can go on to do after your course is finished
