Courses are run at various locations include the Rose Community Centre in Nine Elms, Tooting Library, the Wandsworth City Learning Centre in Balham and the Professional Development Centre in Tooting.
Cabinet member for skills and employment Cllr Jonathan Cook said, “Our Lifelong Learning Team deliver hundreds of courses every year to thousands of local people. The Festival of Learning is a chance to get a taste of some of the courses on offer, pick up skills to improve your life and enhance your job prospects or just enjoy learning for its own sake whatever your age.”
