Courses and Training

Thank you for your interest in studying with High Trees!

Whether you are studying to discover your potential, gain essential skills, increase your confidence, access further training, improve your career prospects or gain qualifications, you are in the right place.

Our offer of accredited and non-accredited courses range from basic skills that can help with employment or build skills for everyday life to specialised accredited courses that can provide routes into new areas (such as housing, community action or education).

We recognise that many learners have previously had little or negative experiences of education and training so we aim to offer all of our courses in a supportive environment and to provide you with the best guidance about opportunities for volunteering, accessing further or higher education and training.


We are excited to open our doors on the 26th of August for a new enrolment term! You can enrol with us from the 26th of August to the 11th of September from 10 am to 3 pm.

You can find all our Autumn timetables here.
