Are you a community organisation, charity, faith group or school who'd like City College Peterborough to deliver free community or family learning in your venue?

City College Peterborough works in partnership with schools and community organizations and provides funding and trained tutors to deliver free informal community learning to adults and families in Peterborough. We have over 75 years’ experience in delivering informal learning in our communities.

Our courses give everyone the opportunity to benefit. Studies have shown that informal community learning has huge benefits for adults’ physical and mental wellbeing, confidence and skills and can improve longevity of life.*

Having had a first taste of informal learning, adults are signposted to further opportunities, whether volunteering, further learning or employment.

*2019 Learning and Work Institute “Healthy, Wealthy and Wise.”

Family Learning is also free and is designed for parents/carers alone or with their children (early years only) to help parents support their children’s development during their early years and at school. Family Learning offers exciting and fun activities such as storytelling; reading; writing; numbers; science and learning about the world and has huge benefits and can improve school attendance and attainment and help adults develop their skills and confidence.

You can tell us what courses would benefit your community or families or we can provide you with a menu of the popular courses we deliver such as keeping up with the children; book clubs; family science; arts and crafts; gardening; healthy eating on a budget and make and mend.

If your organisation has a room to accommodate 8-10 people, we’ll provide trained, experienced tutors and funding and make the process easy by setting up, planning, promoting and delivering the courses.
