Access a selection of high quality tasters put together by our expert tutors

During this time Activate Learning wants to be able to give something back to the communities we are part of. We are developing a new Community Hub to provide people with access to free, high-quality online tutorials that aim to give you a chance to discover a new passion and learn new skills. There will soon be hours of scheduled online courses and tutorials delivered by our expert tutors and staff, all just a click away. And with more online resources being added regularly, there will be something there for everyone.

We hope to run more tutorial taster sessions soon. In the meantime you can access our video-based taster sessions below.
