Adult Learning in York Week 2022

Published Monday, 13 June 2022

The breadth of lifelong learning opportunities available in York will be showcased later this month as part of the city’s second Adult Learning in York Week.

Organised by adult learning providers across the city Adult Learning in York Week, which is being held from 27 June to 3 July, will include a series of one-off learning events, with sessions on subjects such as:

  • how a steam engine works
  • an introduction into family history
  • uncovering the legend of Dick Turpin

The aim is to showcase just some of the activities and courses that run throughout the year in York.

This is the second year the event has been held, building on the success of the inaugural Adult Learning in York Week last September.

Councillor Darryl Smalley, City of York Council’s Executive Member for Culture, Leisure and Communities, said:

Learning doesn’t have to stop the minute we leave school or college and there are some fantastic courses, groups and seminars in York for adult learners of all abilities.

“Whether it’s building on an existing hobby, learning a new language, or developing your job-related skills, there really is something for everyone. Learning through our lives is a great way to boost our wellbeing, helping to reduce loneliness and make new connections to our local communities. I’d urge people to see what’s on offer!”
