Family and Community Learning run courses for adults 19+ with additional needs.
Courses are five sessions long and held online or in person in venues across Wiltshire. We provide programmes with clear progression pathways that lead to the development of new skills, improved personal achievement, and positive outcomes. Courses can potentially lead to qualifications, volunteering or employment. All our tutors are qualified and experienced in adapting sessions to support, engage and challenge every learner.
