Warwickshire’s Adult and Community Learning Service (WACL) is part of Warwickshire County Council and a provider of adult learning.

We offer formal and informal learning programmes to adults aged 19+ across Warwickshire, in over 30 inclusive learning environments in a wide range of community venues.

Courses offered include:

  • English
  • maths
  • ESOL (English as a second language)
  • computer skills
  • languages
  • arts and crafts
  • and courses for adults with learning difficulties.

Family Learning activities are also offered to parents and their children, with many of these activities organised through primary schools.

We want our residents to have the opportunities to realise their potential, even if they may not have had positive experiences of learning in the past. We want to enable participation and remove barriers to learning, including for adults who might otherwise be disadvantaged because of economic inactivity, learning or language needs, vulnerability, isolation or digital exclusion.

We offer support to learners, so that they can grow in confidence, build on existing knowledge, develop skills, try new experiences, meet new people or find a job. We listen to learners and partner with them to develop high quality services that meet their needs and requirements, respond to how they want to learn, and enable them to develop the skills that employers are seeking.
