Canterbury Adult Education Centre

Canterbury

Situated off Rheims Way, the Canterbury centre offers a broad range of courses and a superb environment for learning.

Based in a modern, purpose-built venue with panoramic vistas of the city, including a magnificent view of Canterbury Cathedral. The Canterbury Adult Education Centre is within walking distance of the city centre and Canterbury East/West train stations. Highlights include Life Drawing, Oil Painting, Sewing and Languages.

In light of the Government's recent announcement regarding the national lockdown, we have made the decision to close our adult education centres, at close of business on 5th January 2021. Where possible, our courses will transfer to a real time and online environment. A member of our Customer Relations team will contact you, if you are enrolled on a course which is now being delivered online. Our current online courses will continue as planned. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
