Community learning includes a broad range of local learning opportunities that brings together adults (of different ages and backgrounds) and helps them to pursue an interest, address a need, gain a new skill, become healthier or learn how to support their children.

The Community Learning team has a commissioning framework of local suppliers that deliver adult learning programmes in key community settings across Sheffield. These programmes fall into one of 4 categories:

  • English / Maths
  • Digital
  • English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and
  • Learning for Personal wellbeing and entry into Employment 
Our classes are primarily non-accredited but do include many that lead to a nationally recognised qualification. Learners can enrol on any course even if they haven’t studied before.

There is a small charge to attend these classes however English and maths are free. Classes are free for those Learners on means tested benefits.

Family Learning



Family Learning provides opportunities for parents/carers to find out how to help their children learn and develop. We also provide a route back into education for those adults who want to improve their own skills. Our focus is on improving English, maths, digital skills and health and well-being for families across the city.

By finding out how their children are learning in nursery or school, Family Learning enables parents/carers to support this learning at home. We use exciting resources and activities which make learning fun. Evidence shows that when parents/carers are involved in their children’s education, children achieve more.

Family Learning is free to learners and to settings. Our team of expert, qualified tutors deliver a range of courses (from 2 to 30 hours) in schools, family centres and community settings. For those wishing to progress further, we offer qualification courses and routes into further/higher education, volunteering and employment.
