Objectives

We are a leading adult education charity with a legacy that stretches back over a hundred years, having been founded back in 1903.

Our mission is to bring adult education within reach of everyone who needs it, fighting inequality and promoting social justice. 

Today, we continue to empower adults by bringing great teaching to local communities across England and Scotland, reaching tens of thousands of learners each year.  

We believe every adult from a variety of backgrounds should have access to education and its benefits right on their doorstep.

Activities

We reach into communities where learners live and work to deliver learning in surroundings that they are familiar with and comfortable in.

Our smaller class sizes mean learners get more personal care, attention and support.

We teach to a person, not to a qualification or an award. 

Both online and in-person, we believe in keeping group sizes down, making it easier for our learners to speak up, get to know their group and get actively involved in learning and sharing their own expertise.

This also allows our experienced tutors to tailor their approach to the exact needs and interests of their tutor group.  

Between the expert tutor and a friendly and integrated tutor group, our learners develop a fantastic learning network and informal support safety net that on many occasions are with them for life.
