Adult Education in Merton
Merton Council offers a wide range of courses in partnership with Merton College and Richmond Adult Community College.
Merton College has specialist teaching, and a support team, to work with young people and adults with a wide range of disabilities, and learning difficulties. A section of the application form gives you the opportunity to request assistance from the Learner Support Team. The college facilities are adapted to provide access to everyone, and contact information for the co-ordinators for each type of support is provided in the Support for Your Success booklet http://www.merton.ac.uk/images/documents/learner-support.pdf
Daytime courses for adults (people over 18), who have a learning disability or difficulty, include life skills, looking after yourself, arts & crafts, etc. The courses take place at a number of locations around the borough (South Wimbledon, Colliers Wood and Mitcham) between 10am and 4.30pm on weekdays. Contact Merton Adult Learning for details.
