Community Learning

The Community Learning programme is designed to offer participants opportunities to engage in diverse creative activities- from fine art and crafts, to performing arts. Although you can enrol on any course during the year, these stand alone courses link together as progression routes allowing you to develop your skills, confidence and independence throughout the academic year.

These courses are subsidised for learners who face disabling barriers.

We will be running courses which cover both arts and performance, these will be held in various community venues across Gloucestershire.

Booking is Essential 

It is essential that you book your place on our courses. We aim to provide a learning environment that is safe and comfortable for our learners therefore each course has a set number of available spaces. Courses are popular so please book in advance to secure your place. Turning up on the day without booking may cause disappointment if the class is full. Also if there are any unforeseen changes that occur before the start of a course, learners that are booked on can be easily contacted and informed of those changes.
