Open Age's Adult Community Learning (ACL) offers a number of courses. These courses need to be booked and require a commitment of between 5 and 10 weeks. If that sounds like something you might be interested in, we have a fantastic range of classes such as:

  • Learn to use computer
  • Master your smartphone or iPad
  • Improve your English
  • Learn a new language
  • Develop your writing
  • Participate in art, dance and drama
  • Read and enjoy poetry
  • Learn to relax, be happy, meditate

These are only a sample! All our courses are run in a friendly, supportive environment. They’re a great opportunity to make new friends and learn new skills.

ACL courses are different from the standard Open Age drop-in classes. This is because we receive funding for the courses from the Government via The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. As a small charity, Open Age relies heavily on Government Funding for these classes which come with conditions that both we as a charity, and you as a member must meet. Therefore, we ask all members to carefully consider these, especially the commitment to attend all or close enough to all sessions before enrolling on an ACL class.

The conditions are:

  • To complete an enrolment form which entails providing evidence of ID i.e. Passport or Driving Licence
  • To provide you National Insurance number
  • Commitment to attend all sessions

ACL Costs:
Our fees are £3 per session. Our ACL courses are a slightly different cost to all the other Open Age classes as we are funded by the government via the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. However the course may be free if you meet the eligibility criteria.
