Tonbridge Adult Education Centre

Tonbridge

The Tonbridge Adult Education centre operates from adjoining buildings on Avebury Avenue; one is a Victorian structure built in 1890 as the Technical Institute and Free Library with an amazing art room. The second, newer building was opened in 1984.

The centre specialises in Craft courses and has a reputation for high-quality Stained Glass, Sugarcraft, Floristry, Silversmithing and Jewellery. We also offer Language, Wellbeing and History courses, as well as English and Maths. This year we are expanding our programme in Tonbridge, with the addition of new classrooms and facilities.

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.
