Adult Learning

We have been rated 'Good' by Ofsted - read our latest inspection report: Calderdale Adult Learning Report. Or see below for a brief summary.

Summary of key findings:

  • Staff provide strong pastoral and academic support so that learners who are often isolated and disadvantaged can engage in education.
  • Learners develop good personal, social and employability skills and grow in confidence.
  • The quality of initial advice and careers guidance is good. Learners develop clear and realistic plans for their future.
  • Non-accredited programmes engage learners in interesting and purposeful activities that make a positive difference to their health and adult lives. Programmes support the strengthening of communities through reducing social isolation.

This is your year to make changes. It's your turn to enrich your life, venture into new areas, learn something new and open doors for future opportunities!
