Subject Area Overview

Through our Adult and Community Learning area we specialise in providing a number of part-time leisure and interest courses.  

All of our courses vary in length with the subjects being student-led; this means that we put on courses in response to the request of our partners or to the need of individuals.  They offer a great way to develop your skills for use in the workplace or community and can promote health and well-being for you, your families and communities.

Join Us

The Royal Borough of Greenwich Horticultural Skills Centre at Shooters Hill opened in 2015. As part of Hadlow College, the outstanding land-based college in Kent, the Horticultural Skills Centre offers vocational and higher educational programmes.

Facilities include a polytunnel, teaching rooms, IT suite and a training centre, where students can learn how to handle heavy equipment, such as chainsaws and cutting tools used in horticulture.

Specialist teaching at our centre enables students to gain new horticultural skills that they can either use just for their own pleasure, or as a stepping stone to employment within the growing horticulture sector.

Courses have literacy, numeracy and IT skills embedded, with the aim of equipping students with a range of transferable skills that will increase employability and provide potential access to a range of jobs and careers.

Our courses run throughout the year.
