Community Learning

Sutton College would like to offer you the opportunity to apply for one (or more!) of our exciting low cost courses and workshops.

Our target group is London Borough of Sutton residents and our aim is to encourage and develop enjoyable learning, achievement and progression for adults in Sutton. In particular, those who are most in need and/or have had the least opportunity to take part in learning activities and access a wide range of learning opportunities which will enhance their life in many different ways.

We can arrange courses to meet your needs in the following areas:

  • Physical Health and Wellbeing
  • Mental Health and Wellbeing
  • Digital Inclusion
  • Social Cohesion
  • Steps to Employability
  • First Steps Engagement
  • Family Learning

In order to keep these learning opportunities as affordable as possible, we can run the courses at your venue if it is suitable for the activity selected.

We have provided or worked with partners on courses such as:

  • Art for women who have experienced Domestic Violence
  • Disability Tennis
  • Art for those living with Dementia
  • Gentle Exercise for those living with Dementia

If you are interested in becoming one of our community learning partners, please complete the Community Learning Partner Enquiry Form.

If you have worked on a community learning partnership with us, please complete the Partner Evaluation Form to help us monitor and improve our offering.



We are seeking to support projects and ways of working that can provide people with their ‘first step’ into learning, increased confidence and motivation and an ability to access further learning opportunities. It is widely recognised that the community and voluntary sector can provide some of the most innovative ways of providing learning opportunities to groups that have traditionally been hard to engage and we are hoping to partner with this sector to put on some exciting new learning programmes.

Sutton College may be able to help by offering community groups the opportunity to bid for funding to help run activities that meet the Greater London Authority and the Education and Skills Funding Agency targets including: first steps engagement, employability, social cohesion, mental and physical wellbeing and digital inclusion.

We are especially interested in supporting projects concerned with helping our community back into employment after the Covid-19 epidemic.

If you have a project you would like us to consider, please complete the Expression of Interest form in the first instance. You will then be invited to an online meeting where more information will be given.
