About Community Adult Education

Canterbury Christ Church University offers you the opportunity participate in our growing range of Community Adult Education programmes which have been developed for you to discover, learn and enjoy.

Our wide range of day schools, short courses and summer schools for our 2017/18 programme have been designed in response to your feedback.

The majority of courses are being held at our Canterbury Campus, with a selection taking place at our Broadstairs campus

This year our programme includes specialist courses which extend our commitment to issues concerning diversity and equality. The Introduction to British Sign Language (BSL) course, may be followed up with an accredited BSL programme and our courses covering aspects of dementia and autism help raise awareness in these areas.

We are delighted to be working with the England Centre for Practice Development in promoting courses for health and well-being through the arts and our on-going commitment to the issues surrounding sustainability is reflected in courses offered by members of the University's Sustainability Team.

We are proud of the collaborative and inclusive nature of our programmes, and our friendly and expert tutors will help you get the most out of your course.  Whilst almost all the Community Arts and Education courses are non-accredited, and to be enjoyed for their own sakes, we are happy to provide certificates of attendance.

Once again, we are pleased to enjoy the on-going support of the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) and our local University of the Third Age (U3A).

Some of our Creative Writing students have formed their own writing and performance group. As Canterbury Yarners, they appear at local literary festivals, including WhitLit and the Wise Words Festival, reading their own work. They are also hard at work on other projects, both individually and as a group. Find out more about Canterbury Yarners »

Note: These programmes are being developed by the Faculty of Education in conjunction with other departments across the University.
