Valkeakoski Lifelong Learning Centre offers a wide variety of courses, lectures and events for people of all ages, from children to senior citizens. We operate in five communities in the region: Akaa, Kangasala, Pälkäne, Urjala and Valkeakoski. Our courses are open to anyone regardless of educational background, age, sex or nationality.

We offer more than 800 different courses, lectures and events annually: Finnish as a second language, foreign languages, ICT, fine art, handicraft, dance, music, wellbeing and cooking courses, open university, among others. Children and young people can study drama and dance according to a national curriculum. We also offer National Language Certificate examinations (YKI) in Finnish and English.

Our main building is located at Kauppilankatu 2, Valkeakoski. Most of our courses outside of Valkeakoski take place in schools and community centres.
