Adult Education

Adult Education courses

CEC provides a great range of courses, accredited and non-accredited for people of all abilities. Our tutors are experienced, have a great enthusiasm for teaching in the community and are very approachable. At Conway we believe money should not be a barrier to learning and we keep the course fees are as low as possible. If you prefer, you can agree a payment plan with CEC and pay your course fee over a number of weeks.

The centre has a long term professional relationship with key providers of adult education in Belfast such as the Belfast Metropolitan College and the South Eastern Regional College and has recently started working with the University of Ulster, Queens University and the Open University.

CEC provides a safe and encouraging environment for learning opportunities, enabling local people to improve their confidence and skills in order to fulfil their potential, enhance their chances of employment, and participate in the development of their community. A key strength of CEC is its learner-centred approach. It has developed strategies, approaches and supports that encourage learners back to education and enable them to develop their confidence, skills and abilities. Hundreds of people a year are re-connected with education at CEC, our youngest learner is 8 and the oldest is 81 years of age.
