About The Adult Education School

We build community by supporting adult learners to achieve their educational and career goals.

Founded in 1958 by Merle Swan-Williams, the Adult Education School is recognised as the first alternative school in Bermuda.

With small class sizes, personalised schedules and a supportive and inclusive atmosphere, the school has for 60+ years provided adult learners with opportunities to: participate in an alternative education programme that meets their needs; become literate and numerate; achieve a GED certificate and prepare for further education in their chosen fields; and to participate fully in the community.

Reimagining the Adult Education School

The Adult Education School, with continued facilitation and support from Catalyst Consulting Ltd, has set out to co-develop and deliver services based on a new framework that sustainably answers the community’s need for

  • No or low cost adult education,

  • Collaborative programming with other community providers,

  • Expanded course offerings that meet personal interests and increase “employability”,

  • Flexible learning platforms (online, in-person, live, pre-recorded) and course lengths/ speeds, and

  • Helping students to overcome barriers of stigma and non-education road-blocks.

Who are our students?

In short, our students could be anyone!

In keeping with our history, AES will continue to cultivate a non-judgmental, welcoming environment with opportunities tailored to adult learners who have not had their needs met in other traditional or readily available spaces.

At AES 2.0, however, that space expands from adults seeking support for foundational numeracy, literacy, and GED skills, to adults looking for a new career avenue, a more fulfilling pastime, or support for navigating a new chapter in their life.

The key to our institutional design is an active commitment to creating an intentionally safe environment for students to share their needs, judgement-free. 

Watch this space to keep up to date with progress as more details of the reimagining process are revealed in the coming weeks.
