Dover Adult Education Centre


The Dover Adult Education Centre was the first integrated learning centre in Kent and is surrounded by Dover’s history.

From the glazed crescent of the children’s library you can see the ruins of St Martin-le-Grande, and from the other side of the building the remains of the Classis Britannica Fort are visible.

Dover Adult Education centre will be opening soon. We are currently reviewing which services and courses can be delivered within a Covid-19 safe environment.
Please be aware that some courses attributed to this centre are still being delivered in a real time online environment. Please check the location in the course description before enrolling to confirm where your course will be taking place.

This will be phased reopening, further communication will be forthcoming when a definitive date and which services/courses will be available can be announced.
Please continue to check the website for further details.
