Trade School is open to all

Trade School is open to everyone, if you would like to bring children or babies with you just let us know when you sign up. They are welcome to join in the class, or simply be with you while you learn and they play, read or rest.

Trade School is great way of sharing skills and talents. Anyone can teach something they are skilled at, or passionate about. Learners ‘pay’ for class with a small barter item. Or you can offer to share your skills by teaching a Trade School Dudley class later in the year.
