Live Local Learn Local

Our Community Outreach Program is an exciting project, bringing FREE courses close to where people live and work in SE Wales.

Live Local Learn Local is designed and run in partnership with local organisations and other learning providers. We respond to a variety of learning needs and local interests and therefore design new courses each year.

We run up to 40 FREE short courses each year, providing attractive and flexible learning opportunities designed to help support community-based students progress to the next stage, whether that is work, college or university.

Courses run throughout the year in Community First areas in Cardiff and the surrounding areas, and focus on those living in areas where university participation rates are low. The courses are delivered by dedicated tutors experienced in working with students from a variety of backgrounds and with different learning experiences.
