Join your local adult learners’ forum

Are you an adult learner living in Glasgow?

Would you like to be involved in your local Adult Learners’ Forum?


There are a number of opportunities across Glasgow for adult learners to get involved beyond attending their classes.  These range from occasional city wide events to more local groups in your area.

Learners told us:

  • They wanted to know what was going on in their communities
  • They wanted to ‘give something back’
  • They liked working with others and using new skills.

Getting involved in your local Adult Learners’ Forum is a great way to do these things.

We are currently gathering names of learners who would like to get together to discuss adult learning in the North West, North East and South of Glasgow.  This might be in a small group or via telephone or email depending on what people prefer. We would love to hear from you!

If you are not sure which area of the city you are in, have a look at the CPP area finder – put your postcode in and it will tell you which area that is: https://www.glasgowcpp.org.uk/
