Short Courses

We provide a full programme of adult learning opportunities for the school environment

With our extensive range of adult education courses, your school can extend its learning offering to the community. Tied to our values of equality and participation without barriers, the courses further the knowledge, skills and well-being of participants as they continually develop themselves in adulthood.


Very well structured course with lots of new content I hadn’t covered before in Coaching Qualifications. The Mental Fitness, wellbeing and Nutrition content was really useful for me to improve my overall coaching capability.

Adult Education

Working with Activate Learning, we offer fully funded courses for adults 19 years and over

These qualifications are designed to create activity leaders who can write engaging and challenging learning sessions whilst developing simple transferable skills and recognizing the health benefits of being active together.

Get in touch

We know your school is unique, so let’s talk

At Ignite, we recognise that no two courses are the same. In fact, we actively make sure they aren’t because that’s how we make the experience fit the school.

It all begins with a conversation.

If you send us your details we will listen as you tell us what you want your school to achieve. We will then help you start one of the most exciting learning developments you will do this year.
