You do not need any previous qualifications or experience to enrol on a Lifelong Learning course; but in certain circumstances it might be an advantage to you to have completed certain modules before progressing to the next stage – where this applies it is clearly indicated in the course descriptions. If you are unsure about which level to join, please contact the relevant subject Co-ordinator.
Welsh for Adults work with local providers to ensure they offer a comprehensive range of courses which will appeal to learners of all levels – either those looking to improve their Welsh or those who want to start learning Welsh. They are:
- Ceredigion County Council
- Coleg Harlech WEA
- Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor
They also run Proficiency courses for fluent Welsh speakers wishing to improve their command of the Welsh language.
Their aim is to start adult learners on the road to study, whether for work or pleasure. Their courses range from basic IT to modern foreign languages, Welsh and Arts & Crafts.
