Adult Education

Tredworth Junior School sees itself as a hub of the community.  While rising numbers mean that we no longer have space to offer Adult Education courses in the school, we aim to continue to engage learners beyond the age barriers of the school to help our families to gain new skills or improve on existing expertise.  We hope that by gaining certificates and accreditation this will allow them to gain further qualifications and employment.  We do this by signposting adult education opportunities from Gloucestershire County Council Adult Education and other accredited providers. 

 

We signpost course opportunities to our families when we receive them.
