LANGUAGES

Adult Education at the Brewery continues to go from strength to strength, with over 1,500 people attending courses each year and more classes being delivered than ever before.

p20 HEALTH & MOVEMENT

Your feedback is important to us and with outstanding results in learner satisfaction this is testament to why people continue to return to the Brewery.

All our classes are non-accredited, but through the support and feedback of your tutor you will be aware of your development and suitable progression routes. Certificates will be available on request from your tutor should you wish to have something in writing verifying the completion of your course.

We believe, with your support, the Brewery will continue as one of the flagships for Adult Education across the county offering classes which are real value for money. This would not be achievable without the generous subsidies from Cumbria Adult Education.
