Free Adult Education courses offered

Alton College has been advised of changes which will now help many people get free funding on adult education courses.

The recent changes mean that certain funding criteria for adult education courses, in light of the current economic situation, have been relaxed and many people could now be eligible for free course fees on our adult courses. To simplify this, we have highlighted all of our funded courses on the adult education course pages of our website as well as including full details on funding eligibility.

The initiative specifically aims to help people who are unemployed, who have left the Armed Forces, or who are 19-24 and wish to take Maths or English GCSEs. It is hoped that this opportunity will help people into employment or further education and training.

Free courses include:

Our full range of adult courses are gaining popularity and offer excellent opportunities for people wanting to gain a qualification, start a career or new business or find an enjoyable leisure activity. The full course list can be found by following this link and details about criteria for receiving fully funded courses are available in the Funding and Finance pages.

Our Adult Education team are here to help you and can be contacted by e-mail by phone on 01420 592210 or by visiting the College where we would be very happy to discuss your individual needs.
