Margate Adult Education Centre


Margate Adult Education Centre, formerly an art college, is a landmark building located on Hawley Square in the centre of town and is easily accessible on various local bus routes.

It is known for its Life Drawing courses and has a fully equipped silversmithing studio.

Margate Adult Education centre will re-open on 14th September. We are continuing to review 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.
Several changes have been made to the Margate Adult Education centre to make it Covid-19 secure.
- The installation of sanitiser stations
- New instructional signage
- The use of spatial surveys to ensure that social distancing can be maintained
- The installation of screens where appropriate
- The implementation of a test and trace system
