Courses at Blackfriars
Welcome to Blackfriars Settlement.
Blackfriars Settlement is a small community centre that offers work with older people, a project for people with mental health issues and adult education.
We occupy a newly built premises at 1 Rushworth Street SE1 ORB which is a short walk from Southwark tube station, close to Waterloo, the Southbank and Tate Modern. Whether you’ve been to Blackfriars in the past or if it’s your first time here; our welcoming atmosphere and staff are ready to help you with your enquiries and support you with your needs. This year has proven to be an exciting time for the Settlement bringing both change and opportunity. In May we were very happy to announce our merger with the Mary Ward Settlement and are delighted that the Mary Ward Centre will be running more courses here and the Mary Ward Legal Centre will be providing free housing advice. Both organisations share values and history that will enable us to retain and build upon our individual strengths and continue to deliver our valuable services to our communities in a sustainable way. For 2018/19 there are lots of courses to choose. There are courses that will help you get a job or get a better job such as MS Office Essentials, Project Management, Business Administration and Coaching and Mentoring. Literacy and ESOL classes will help you in everyday life and work. To help you stay fit and healthy there are exercise classes such as Yoga, Pilates as well a range of exciting dance classes. If you’re feeling creative there are a range of visual and performing art courses. Browse through the pages and whatever your interests we are sure you’ll find something you’ll enjoy.
