SOAR offers a wide variety of community learning courses that bring together adults, of different backgrounds and ages, to pursue an interest, acquire a new skill, become healthier or learn how to support their children.

Community learning courses are part-time and delivered in partnership with other community organisations. Our classes are small and friendly and are delivered by excellent tutors.

Community Learning will help keep your brain active, improve your confidence and can be fun. Download our Activity Directory for a up-to date list of all our courses and join us to brush up old skills, discover new talents and explore your potential.
