Adult Learning » About Learning for Life

Adults across the Highlands take part in learning to develop their skills and confidence, meet new people and make positive changes.

Community-based adult learning provides a range of learning activities in local communities which include help with everyday life skills such as reading, writing, spelling, using numbers, English language (ESOL) and digital literacy. Adults come together in small groups or one-to-one where they are supported by trained tutors to move forward on their lifelong learning journey.


Learning is life-long: we never stop learning new things, whatever our age!

Learning is life-wide: learning new skills has a positive impact on our whole lives by increasing knowledge and building confidence.

Learning is learner-centred: you decide what to learn and how you want to participate!
