Ashford Adult Education Centre


The Ashford Adult Education Centre is located at the Ashford Gateway Plus and features contemporary facilities, furniture and equipment.

The modern building has been built to reduce its environmental impact and includes the use of solar panels and an air source heat pump to generate energy, as well as a green roof for added insulation. The Ashford centre features a range of courses and is equipped with a spacious art room located in the centre of the building. It has inspirational views overlooking the Memorial Gardens.

We are working to re-open our Ashford centre, and we are currently reviewing which services and courses can be delivered within a Covid-19 safe environment.
Further communication will be forthcoming when a definitive date and which services/courses will be available can be announced. Please continue to check the website for further details.
