About Adult Learning

At The Cheadle & Marple College Network we believe that there’s always an opportunity to continue to grow through learning new things, trying new experiences and meeting new people.

That’s why we offer a wide range of both part-time and full-time courses which are specifically aimed at adults who want to gain an academic qualification, learn a new skill, discover a new hobby, boost their career prospects or simply broaden their horizons.

Some courses take just one day to complete and are for pleasure; some last between five and thirty weeks – offering a deeper understanding of your chosen subject; and some can take over a year, leading to a professional or academic accredited qualification.

It all comes down to what you want to study, where you want to study, how much time you want to invest in your personal development and what fits best with both your lifestyle and your aspirations.

Health and Safety
The Cheadle College  is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for our students. Personal Safety is important when you take part in any learning.

At the moment, the issue of terrorism is regularly in the news but the College has worked with key stakeholders for some time in order to ensure that our students and staff are safe within college. We take the protection of our staff and students very seriously and work closely with the police, and other external government agencies.
