Online courses now available

In line with government guidance and social distancing advice, Merton Adult Learning temporarily moved from face to face learning to online and distance learning. MAL is working in collaboration with our subcontracting providers to do the best for our learners during this period of uncertainty. You can now enrol for courses beginning in September, and you will be kept informed on how your course will be delivered.

Courses may be delivered through a variety of options, providing continuity for our learners in these unprecedented times. So if you're looking to learn something new, develop your employment opportunities, stimulate your mind, or improve your wellbeing, follow the links and contact details below. 


Learning courses for adults are available from Merton College, Global Solution Services and other providers.
