Education and training

Education is a great way to learn something new, meet people, acquire work skills or just to have an active retirement.

  • Build up your skills

    Brushing up on skills is not only important for your career, it’s an ideal way to discover your untapped potential.
  • Classes and courses

    From evening classes and degree courses to informal group learning, we look at the options for learning in later life.
  • Higher education and training

    It's never too late to learn. The majority of universities and colleges welcome mature students.
  • University of the Third Age (U3A)

    The University of the Third Age gives you the chance to learn new skills without the pressure of qualifications.

A small favour

All the information and advice we provide on the website is free and completely independent, as is our Advice Line that is open 365 days a year.

But demand is going up. We are an ageing population and more people than ever are coming to us for support, which is why we need to ask for help.

If you are able to, just a small gift today could help us reach even more older people wherever the need is greatest.

Please support our work
