Ealing Council’s adult learning service offers courses that take place in a variety of locations across the borough. They are open to people aged 19 years and over, and are designed to help residents in both their personal and professional development.

There are a range of classes which are tailored towards getting fit and staying healthy such as zumba and yoga, as well as development of leisure skills including, guitar lessons and oil painting. Residents can also improve their job skills with courses covering CV writing, interview techniques and First Aid.

Course guides are available upon request by emailing adultlearning@ealing.gov.uk or by calling 020 8825 5577. They can also pick up a copy from local libraries and community centres.

Councillor Ranjit Dheer, cabinet member for community services and safety, said:
“It’s never too late to retrain or learn a new skill and the new year is a perfect time to start. We have an impressive range of courses on offer from sign language to dance and all at very competitive prices. I would encourage anyone considering taking a course to have a look at our prospectus and come along to one of our enrolment days”.
