Why learn for leisure?

Learning doesn't have to be formal and you don't have to learn for a qualification. Learning can be fun and a great way to relax and socialise. You might want to develop an existing interest or learn something new.

Why learn for leisure?

Learning can be a way of relaxing and doing something you enjoy, alongside other like-minded people in a relaxed environment.

Learning for leisure can also build your confidence, and act as a stepping-stone back into more academic learning.

You can learn just about anything you want and courses can take place anywhere from colleges and learning centres to libraries and outdoor locations. You can learn over a weekend, do a longer course or even go on a learning holiday.
