Adult Learners' Week is a national celebration of lifelong learning; the biggest in England. The Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning are holding a range of free events as part of Adult Learners' Week 2015 (13-19 June 2015).

We at the Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning are devoted to providing a programme of flexible, part-time courses for adult learners. In celebration of Adult Learners' Week 2015, we are offering a range of FREE activities to showcase some of the courses and the support we have to offer this coming Autumn.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about a subject you are interested in and what it would be like to study part-time with us. It’s also a great way to help you make up your mind if you are undecided about committing to study.

There are a limited number of places on each session, but you can book on multiple sessions if you wish. It is recommended that you book quickly to avoid disappointment.

All of our events will take place at Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning, 128 Regent Road, Leicester, LE1 7PA.
