Community learning delivers approachable courses that can help you move on or just make you happy!

Who are we?

Bristol Community Learning is part of Bristol City Council’s Employment, Skills and learning team. We set up a wide range of courses in community venues across Bristol. All our courses are aimed at adults with few or no qualifications and unemployed adults looking for work.

What's it like?

Courses are friendly and supportive. Classes are free and our experienced tutors are there to support you to explore your goals and build your skills. Classes run in many different venues across Bristol.

Our success

Bristol Community Learning has been graded a Good Provider by OFSTED. Many of our learners gain qualifications, progress to more learning, or get paid or voluntary work. Last year over 1000 learners took part in our courses across Bristol. 99% of our learners told us they were satisfied with their course and learnt something new.
