About our courses

We offer a wide range of courses for adults of all abilities who are aged 19 and over. You may want to learn a new skill, take up or develop an interest, gain a qualification or train to support your career; or you might want to meet new people and find a relaxing pastime. With so many courses on offer, we aim to provide something for almost everyone.

Enriching your talents!

Our popular leisure courses are labelled as Enriching Your Talents! They do not lead to a formal qualification, but with these courses you can learn a new skill, broaden your talents or enjoy a relaxing leisure interest. Whether it’s learning a language, using IT or enjoying the creative or performing arts, you should find a course that suits you. See the brochure for course listings.

Gaining a qualification

At Strode adults can also study for a qualification, including academic qualifications such as a GCSE or A Level, and vocational, work-related qualifications such as Diplomas. We also offer Higher Education qualifications. All of our qualifications are accredited by leading professional bodies or nationally recognised awarding organisations. Our higher level Degrees and Foundation Degrees are accredited by Plymouth University.

All qualification-based courses are categorised into levels; they progress from Entry Level to Level 6. When you apply to join a course we will discuss your prior qualifications and their level to make sure you are eligible for the course you have chosen and we will also check what fees you will need to pay. See the brochure for course listings and further information.
