Adult courses and learning

Choose from a huge range of day and evening courses, including languages, arts, crafts, computer skills and practical skills like cookery and gardening.

Adult learning courses offer the chance to explore an interest, skill or hobby, develop specialist skills you can use in business, and are a way of meeting people and enjoying learning.

Where the courses take place

Most of our courses are at our main base, Stoke Lodge in Stoke Bishop, with some additional courses at the St Pauls Learning and Family Centre.

Find and book a course

All courses are listed and can be booked online at the Bristol Courses website.
