Summer adult education courses are moving online

Published: 19 June 2020

Residents can take part in a wide range of free online courses this summer.


Online courses include:

  • environmental awareness
  • interview skills
  • sign language
  • Spanish
  • dealing with uncertainty and stress
  • art and crafts

Plus many more.

Our Cabinet Member for Children and Young People Councillor Alex Dale said:

“Our adult community education service is committed to providing quality learning for Derbyshire residents for skills, leisure and fun.

“Staff have been working hard to keep our service running during the current coronavirus crisis and provide opportunities for residents despite the barriers we all face.

“Through online learning our learners have access to a range of courses and a high quality and safe learning experience during this period of uncertainty.

“If you’re looking to pick up a new hobby or learn a new skill while spending more time at home this summer, we have something for you. Spaces on our courses are limited so make sure you sign up soon to guarantee a place.”

Some courses can be done online at a pace that suits you while other courses will be delivered remotely using Zoom where learners will be part of a live class with a tutor and fellow learners.

All you need is a laptop, tablet or smart phone with internet access.

Learners will be provided with a list of materials or equipment they need for each session. 

Due to the current coronavirus crisis adult education community centres are unable to open. We'll be issuing further guidance on when facilities will reopen once it is safe to do so in line with government guidance.
