What to expect from a weekly course from adult learning

Our longer courses are designed to help increase and develop you knowledge and skills within your chosen subject area. This can lead to you developing the confidence to move onto a course at a higher level or using your acquired hobby and skills outside of the classroom setting.

If it's your first time visiting the Centre, head to reception and our Centre Staff will happily guide you to your classroom. If you know where you're going then head straight to the classroom. Your course will be held in the same classroom each week unless the Centre needs to move you for operational reasons.

If you're unable to make a particular session, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can make the Centre aware and get the register updated. As our courses are funded and subsidised, and non-notification of absences may mean that we have to contact you to make sure everything is okay, but this can also lead to being withdrawn from the course after consecutive absences. Please email our Customer Service Team at adultlearning@surreycc.gov.uk

Unfortunately not all of our sites have parking available, however information relating to particular Centres is available in the Welcome Handbook which is emailed to you with your course confirmation email.

Details of what to bring to your first session are usually found on the website under the course description of the relevant course, however courses which require more specialist materials or ingredients will be emailed to you a week before the start of the course.

For further information and guidance, please refer to our Fees Policy and Welcome Handbook.
