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.

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.
