Welcome to Adult Education

Here at Itchen, we believe in lifelong learning, which means that learning does not have to end once you have left school. We run a range of adult learning courses, including courses for access to higher education, teacher and training programmes as well as a variety of health and social care courses. For more information about any of our courses, please get in touch with the Adult Education team.
