Adult Learning Service



COVID-19 update

Gain a new skill for work, life and your wellbeing at the Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service.

Our new programme has hundreds of courses, workshops and training: from art, craft, fashion and ceramics to accounting, English, maths, hair and beauty!

We also have  jobs help for Waltham Forest residents, recruiting apprentices, and running our successful English Conversation Clubs.

Some of our courses are fully online, some are in-class and some are a mix of both in-class and online learning.

Our buildings have new signs and Covid-19 safety measures to help keep learners and staff safe. Unless you have a class, please call 020 8496 2974 to make an appointment before you visit one of our learning centres.
