Courses for Adults Over 60
Our popular AgeWell courses are designed to support you through education to improve your health and wellbeing. We offer courses covering a huge variety of subjects, including painting, languages, Tai Chi, computing and digital skills. It is a great way to try something new or reconnect with an old hobby.
Courses are available in the daytime, evenings and weekends in venues across Dorset to enable you to find something that suits you and your lifestyle. We recommend booking in advance as these courses are very popular. Please note, we offer priority spaces to those living alone.
If you are interested in courses for adults over 60, you may also like our Family Learning courses. These are designed for parents and grandparents of children under 16 yrs and can help build better family relationships and learning.
“Living on my own its difficult to find a course that goes the speed that suits a 60+ person. These courses you run are fantastic and I would like to take more, they give you confidence and realization you’re still able to do things.”
“It is lovely to have courses which target people who live on their own. Often one feels left out. The tutor is great and the class works well together, giving a morning of not thinking about anything else but just focusing on painting. Thank you.”
“In the dark winter months it has been great to share the learning experience and just simply lose myself in the subject for a few hours. I am a carer for my husband so it’s good to have time for myself at least once a week.”
