About Adult Community Learning Courses

Our community courses are free, however, to be eligible to join you must be:

  • Living in Glasgow
  • Claiming benefit, on a low income, not working
  • Over the age of 16

Priority for places is given to students living in the North West and South of Glasgow.

As part of the Young Person’s Guarantee priority will be given to young people aged between (16-24) who also meet the additional criteria.

Notebooks can be provided to support your learning. 

Courses run throughout the year and are based on community demand. Our courses are funded via Glasgow City Council Community Planning Partnership (Glasgow Communities Fund) and the Child Poverty Fund.
