ALP : Adult Learning Project, Edinburgh

Welcome to the website for the Adult Learning Project (ALP) Association
Tollcross Community Centre, Edinburgh

The Adult Learning Project runs courses in women’s studies, politics, culture and community, literacies, the arts and community development. 

Based on the philosophy and practice of educationalist and activist Paolo Freire, ALP believes in learning as part of our daily lives: things of interest, things of personal use and things to help us make our communities better and stronger. Together we can investigate the world; educate and empower ourselves and each other; learn from 'experts' / professionals and from people with more experience - through dialogue, on equal terms, and in a co-operative way.
