Adult learning

Improve your knowledge and skills.

At Havant & South Downs College we believe in lifelong learning that opens people’s eyes and enriches their lives. That’s why we offer a range of Adult Learning Courses to help you acquire new knowledge and skills to benefit your future.

Current Adult Learning opportunities include:

We provide a variety of free part time courses for adult learners who are unemployed, economically inactive and are seeking a return to work or individuals who would like to develop their skills. Even if you are in employment you may be eligible to receive full or part funding for a course.

We teach practical skills for individuals or local businesses. We can also provide information,  guidance and access to careers information to help you get the most out of your time with us. We run courses at both our Havant and South Downs Campuses, along with a number of locations in the Portsmouth area including Leigh Park Learning Centre.

We provide individuals aged 18+ who are employed or at risk of redundancy to develop skills to enable in-work progression or progression into apprenticeships, education. Through this programme we also provide support to businesses to take on and develop individuals to fill intermediate, technical and higher level skills gaps and shortages. We deliver accredited provision at levels 3 and 4, aligned with priority sectors, as well as professional training, and leadership and management training across all sectors.

This project aims to give intensive interventions with cohorts of customers aged 50+ years. The aim is to build the confidence levels and increase the skills levels of those that are claiming out of work benefits.   The project has two distinct aims in terms of outcomes: 1. moving unemployed participants into employment, 2. moving participants into education or training.
