About City Lit
Based in the heart of our city, Londoners aged 19-90 and beyond and from all walks of life come together to try something new. Every student has their own story about why they took a course, and what impact it’s had on their life, so every year we have 30,000 more stories to tell. Whether it’s re-skilling as part of a career change, finding a new lease –
Our curriculum is exceptional and extensive - allowing our students to realise their ambitions. This has been the case for 100 years. However, to remain a relevant, attractive destination we use our audience as the lens through which we scrutinise everything we do. We ensure that students learn in a way that is appealing and relevant to them and that our services continually respond to their needs. We actively listen to our students and seek to understand their motivators – internally and externally – so that they’re the centre of our work. We understand the complexities of their lives and offer solutions from their perspectives.
The opinions of some City Lit fans…
“City Lit does incredible work encouraging people to learn new skills that can better their lives, no matter their age.” Sadiq Kahn, Mayor of London - September 2019 “It is particularly encouraging to see how people of all ages and backgrounds come together at City Lit to challenge themselves and transform their lives. If education can be defined as ‘training for life’, then lifelong learning and its ability to unlock potential throughout people’s lives should be accepted as part of life.” HRH The Princess Royal - April 2019 “City Lit has adapted and innovated to meet London’s changing needs and to make a difference to the lives of those who live there. City Lit helps people overcome barriers many people experience when considering learning.” Secretary of State for Education, Damian Hinds MP - November 2018
