The Adult Community Learning service in Torfaen provides a range of high-quality courses to inspire adults from across the county in a friendly, encouraging and supportive environment.

If you are thinking about applying for a job or would like to progress within your career, our accredited courses present an ideal opportunity for you to develop your skills, improve your employability prospects and gain valuable qualifications.

For those who would like to learn for personal interest, our Lifestyle and Leisure courses will enable you to embark on an engaging journey of exploration into new experiences, personal development and improved health and wellbeing.

Due to the time of year our programme is designed and our brochure and website is produced, course dates, term dates and course delivery methods are likely to be subject to change as a result of updated Government guidance regarding COVID-19 restrictions and possible changes to social distancing requirements.  Our website will be updated on a daily basis or as and when changes to our programme occurs.

During the recent COVID-19 pandemic we have worked hard to ensure that our ACL centres provide a safe learning environment. Please be assured that your safety and wellbeing will always be our main priority. However, please be aware that we expect all our learners to abide by Welsh Government guidelines for the health and safety of themselves and others.

Our priority is to keep you learning and keep you well.


Course places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. You can enrol for a course in person at any of our centres or by telephoning our helpline number where a member of our team will be happy to provide information on your course and assist you to enrol.

Where there is a fee, to guarantee a place on your chosen course, you will need to pay a minimum of 50% towards the tuition cost of the course (non refundable). The remaining balance can be paid any time before the commencement of the course but no later than four weeks after the start date.

NOTE: Courses of 8 weeks or less must be paid in full.
