Community Learning is part of South Gloucestershire Council and funded by the Skills Funding Agency. We offer a range of free part-time courses in community venues to help residents gain qualifications, improve job skills, help their children’s learning and become more involved in the local community.

Do you have a camera but wish you could get some better photos? At the U3A Photography Group (Yate and Sodbury District) we welcome all levels of experience – all you need to join is a camera (or even a mobile phone!) and a desire to learn more about how to improve the photographs you are taking! We meet on the first Thursday of every month (except July and August) at 2pm at the St John’s Church Centre, Wickwar Road, Chipping Sodbury, BS37 6BQ. Each session is two hours long. Anyone can join for a free taster session - if you then wish to join the annual fee is £25 plus you will need to join U3A.
