Summer programme for adults and families.

Welcome to the Lifelong Learning and Employability summer programme for adults and families.  We are offering a wide range of short programmes. They stand alone but many of them are tasters for courses you and your family can do starting in September.  These sessions are for anyone living in Midlothian.

We know that for many people the summer is a really busy time. If you find something in here that you are really interested in, but cannot make our sessions, please let us know on the form and we will keep in touch when we have a date for a similar programme.

Who are these courses for?

These courses are aimed at people living in Midlothian. There are no special requirements to take part, but some programmes have limits on ages. You should tell us as early as possible if you will need any support or special arrangements, so that we can ensure the courses meet your needs. All of the programmes are at relatively introductory level, and you will be supported by the course tutor.

How much do they cost?

We aim to make our programmes as low cost as possible, but there are sometimes small costs attached for materials.

Where are the courses taking place?

There are activities right across Midlothian, and we’ve tried to spread things out as much as possible. However we cannot be everywhere all of the time – so please let us know on the form if there’s an activity you would have done but it’s too far away for you.

What if I have a question about a course?

Please call or email us if you have any questions about the summer programme activities. If you want to chat about what the course will be like, or what will be covered, just let us know.

Family learning opportunities – available only to adults and children together

You (or your children) might be getting ready for a new school year, or even making the change from one school to another. This programme contains family learning opportunities, activities that children do alongside their parents, grandparents or other adults. In order to attend these programmes you must come as a child and adult group, not as just a parent or just a child.

Adult learning opportunities – available to anyone over 16

These opportunities are aimed at anyone over 16 years of age. The programme contains a range of activities, some of which are more suited to younger or older adults, but if you see a programme you like, feel free to book on.
