We offer a variety of courses and Saturday workshops for anyone aged 19 and over. Most of our courses continue or are repeated throughout the year and new courses are added throughout the year.
Are you interested in a course which is not listed?
If you would like us to offer a course which we do not currently offer, please let us have your feedback as we are always looking for new ideas: Log an Interest. If you have skills or knowledge to share and would like to teach a course, please see our Tutor Opportunities and contact the Adult Learning Office via email or telephone.
Some of our RHS courses are co-funded (subsidised) by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA). This funding is managed by Cambridgeshire Skills. Depending on your personal circumstances, (eg, unemployed, low waged or in receipt of certain benefits) at the commencement of the course, you may be eligible for a fully funded place, where only the booking fee is payable.
Arrangements have been made to make sure that you are safe at our Centre. If you feel you are not safe for any reason, for example through verbal or physical abuse or you have been discriminated against, please tell your tutor or the Adult Learning Manager, who will investigate further and take the necessary steps to ensure your safety.
Equality and Diversity
We are fully committed to equality of opportunity and welcome enrolments from all adults aged 19+. We believe that everyone is entitled to learn in an environment that is free from discriminatory behaviour. We expect everyone to treat each other with respect, regardless of differences in culture, race, gender, ability, age, sexual orientation and social class. Everyone has a right to learn in a supportive environment.
We encourage learners with any concerns about specific needs to discuss their requirements with us in confidence. We will do our best to accommodate any requests that may facilitate access to resources, equipment and activities and will make reasonable adjustments to ensure that all learners can undertake and satisfactorily complete their course.
Cambridgeshire Skills supports a wide range of other adult learning opportunities across Cambridgeshire to support adults with the lowest level of qualifications, or no qualifications at all, and so typically find themselves in lower paid, less secure jobs or unemployed. Search their website www.cambsals.co.uk for details of all our funded courses.
The National Careers Service (NCS) is available to all learners. It provides free information and advice on all aspects of learning, skills development and employment. Help is provided in a way that suits you; online, face to face or by telephone. Go to www.cambsals.co.uk or call their booking line on 0845 603 1059
