Or Night School as it used to be called!

Time on your hands? Want to learn something new and meet new friends while you do it?  Then why not sign up to Edinburgh’s new Adult Education classes.

With day, evening and weekend courses being offered at venues across the city, there is a variety of subjects on offer this year.

Courses include computing, languages, fitness, genealogy, crafts, yoga, belly dancing, wine appreciation, gardening or stress management.

And with new classes such as criminology, natural home remedies and Feng Shui there is certainly something for everyone.

Last year, a record number of people joined classes and the Council took over 21,000 enrolments.

Councillor Marilyne MacLaren, Convener for Education, Children and Families said: “It is great to see such a diverse and interesting programme this year, these courses are really enjoyable and can offer a real career boost. People continue to tell us how much they benefit from taking part and I am really pleased that the measures we have taken to encourage participation have yielded record numbers this year.”

Also on offer are Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) courses at Higher and Unit levels run by Stevenson College Edinburgh and Edinburgh’s Telford College. These can be taken as formal qualifications for work, college or university or simply for personal development or interest.
