Adult Courses

At South Devon College, we offer a wide range of adult education courses and qualifications, so whatever you want to do, you can achieve it with us.

With so much to choose from, we understand finding the right course can be a big decision. Here you can find all the information you need to know about returning to education as an adult learner.

We also offer free careers advice and guidance to the public through our award winning Helpzone team. They can provide more information about our courses and the qualifications available, as well as any other questions you may have. 

Whether you want to secure paid employment, discover something new, go to university, advance your current career or find a new one entirely, we can help make your ambition a reality.

If you'd like to speak to somebody about a course, you can drop in to our centres in Newton Abbot, Paignton or Torquay for a friendly chat about your future with no commitment necessary. Alternatively, please browse our adult courses and if you would like any further information, contact us on 08000 380 123 or email
