Centre for Lifelong Learning

Welcome to the Centre for Lifelong Learning

The Centre for Lifelong Learning is an award-winning building in Finsbury Park, Islington. Each year we welcome students of all ages from all over the world and the centre is outstanding in its support of equality and diversity. The centre specialises in adult learning, English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) for adults and 16-18 year olds, literacy and numeracy and IT and teacher training. The centre also offers a range of access to higher education courses for adult students who do not have A Levels but who want the chance to go to university. Some students have progressed to Cambridge University after taking one of these courses. The centre is also home to our Accounting Academy, which offers a range of courses in accountancy and bookkeeping.
