Are you over 65?

We have a programme for the over 65s in art, ICT and yoga courses especially designed for you to stimulate both physical and mental aptitude. Activities and pace will be tailored to your needs and abilities.

Employment possibilities

On all our courses you will be able to develop employability skills, such as team-work, time-management, punctuality and attendance.

Specialist studios

We have well equipped specialist studios in our centres - a ceramic studio in Harlington ALC with two kilns large enough to create big garden sculptures, a textile studio for fashion, an art studio and an ICT suite for digital photography courses in Brookfield ALC.

Celebrating learners' work

Our learners get regular opportunities to exhibit their work across the Borough in our learning centres and in local libraries. Learners are also encouraged to enter annual competitions with great prizes in many subjects. The majority of our tutors are practising artists and/or professionals with industry experience. Tutors are supportive, encouraging and will help you to be successful in your studies.

Working in the community

We are very proud of the diverse range of partners we work with in Hillingdon. Together, we engage with many different groups of residents in the community, delivering courses to address local needs, interests and aspirations. If you belong to a local charity, association or community group, please contact us to discuss possible partnership work.
