Uxbridge adult learning site to relocate to Civic Centre

BROOKFIELD Adult Learning Centre in Uxbridge is to be relocated to the Civic Centre.

The council is investing £875,000 in the centre, which is set to open this September.

It will be sited next to the new Uxbridge Family Hub and will have a dedicated entrance.

The move coincides with the council renaming the service Learn Hillingdon – Adult Community Education.

Its programme includes qualifications studies to help residents into work or further their career goals.

There will also be sessions to improve emotional health and wellbeing and to support adults with learning difficulties and disabilities.

Cllr Susan O’Brien, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “If you want to change your career, find a job, learn a new skill or upskill, discover a new interest, boost your confidence or independence, then look at the hundreds of courses we have on offer.”

The programme of courses around the borough will be available from early August at www.hillingdon.gov.uk/adultlearning.

Last night’s (7) cabinet meeting also authorised the lease of the former Brookfield site in Park Road to be assigned to Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, which will create an additional 30 specialist adult learning college places.
