Celtic Learners Network The Celtic Learners Network is an Adult Learning facility in Cardiff and the Vale, offering a wide range of Humanities courses.



The Celtic Learners Network is now in its second term of partnership with Cadw, having created a Summer programme in 2011 that successfully brought adult education lectures to a variety of Cadw sites across South Wales, including Tintern Abbey, Caerwent Education Centre and Chepstow Castle. We were also involved last year with the arrangement of Cadw's summer Learning Festival at Caerphilly Castle, of which Adrienne Goodenough, Cadw's Lifelong Learning Manager, said,

'I am pleased Cadw is able to work in partnership with the Celtic Learners Network during Adult Learners Week. The sites chosen for the lecture programme are certainly unique and offer fascinating backdrops for anyone seeking to learn in an atmosphere with a difference.'

This term we have created a series of lectures at Caerwent, using the excellent education facilities on the site, lectures which cover a broad chronological view of welsh history. For the summer, Cadw and CLN are embarking on a very exciting project called the History Chef which will take the CLN to Cadw sites all over Wales. We will be cooking and presenting authentic historical food for visitors to taste. Please see our events and History Chef pages for more information.

National Museum Cardiff

The Celtic Learners Network is currently enjoying its second term in partnership with National Museum Cardiff, utilising the brand new art education room in the renovated west wing of the building. The course programmes are designed to cover a broad spectrum of art subjects, from practical art sketching courses to more traditional art history classes. National Museum Cardiff is a fantastic venue to be able to run courses from, particularly when the art discussed in class is on display within the galleries, enabling students to gain a whole new appreciation for the course subject. The programmes created so far have consisted of both weekly courses and Saturday day schools, and there are plans to expand current subjects in the Summer term to reflect new exhibitions that will be visiting the National Museum.
