You’ll also get the opportunity to improve your English, maths, ICT and study skills - essential if you want to go on to higher level study or into employment.
Learning Clubs are perfect if you want to learn in an informal class. They cater for both beginners and experienced students. We arrange access to facilities, equipment and support from a self-employed tutor-facilitator. As a student in a learning club you will pay a course fee directly to the self-employed tutor-facilitator and a small fee to Adult Education Wolverhampton.
