Adult Learning Partnerships in Wales

Building a second chance nation and giving everyone a fair chance in life.

Adult Community Learning (ACL) provides flexible learning opportunities for adults and families, delivered in venues in the community to meet local needs. There is an Adult Learning Partnership in every Local Authority area and a lead for adult community learning in each Local Authority and Further Education Institution.

Each of the partnerships work with communities across Wales to respond to local need – they play a vital role in employability, building essential and digital skills, wellbeing; supporting families, promoting integration, and helping people of all ages to live more independent, fulfilling lives.

The partnerships are committed to removing barriers in education and widening access for all individuals to gain equal opportunities, that will enable and empower more people to participate in learning and receive individual support.

Adult Community Learning opportunities:

Courses and learning opportunities are delivered through a diverse network of providers, including local authority adult education services, colleges, and the third sector.

Adult Community Learning delivers essential skills, reading, writing, maths, digital skills, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) qualifications, including Welsh for Speakers of Other Languages (WSOL), as well as learning for employability, and improving health and well-being, family learning programmes, and learning for general interest and leisure.
