Community Learning

Do you work with a local charity or community group, or are you looking to help a specific group of Newcastle residents develop their skills?

We work with a wide variety of community based groups and services to organise free courses across the City. Community Learning can promote positive mental health and wellbeing, and social inclusion. There are various types of courses we can offer, from art and textiles, music and singing, local history and family tree research, modern foreign languages, health eating, photography and creative writing.

With a focus on developing the skills of individual groups and attendees, we work directly with you to ensure that we tailor our course content and delivery to suit your group's requirements. Catering for all abilities, we can plan course lengths and times to suit your group, and help them progress their knowledge and skills with follow-on programmes if required.

If you have a group you'd like us to work with, contact Donna Stokes, our Community Learning Coordinator at or phone 0191 2773593.

We also have an extensive Community Learning programme for individuals with progression routes through to accredited provision. You can find out more in our brochures.
