School Description

The City Literary Institute (City Lit), established in 1919, is an adult and community learning provider with charitable status located in Covent Garden. City Lit offers approximately 5,000 part-time courses annually to 24,000 adult students across London and beyond. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the college has retained a significant online curriculum, mainly in classical and modern foreign languages, humanities and creative writing. Most students are on level 1 programmes that are not qualification based. A wide variety of courses are offered in visual, performing arts and languages and make up the majority of the provision. A smaller proportion of students are on level 2, 3 and 4 programmes in counselling, complementary therapies, access to higher education, foundation programmes in art & design, teacher training and digital technologies. A small proportion of students study English for speakers of other languages (ESOL), functional skills, digital skills and GCSE qualifications in English and mathematics. The college offers specialist programmes in speech therapy and programmes for students who have learning disabilities. The college’s centre for deaf education caters for students who are deaf or have an acquired hearing loss. British Sign Language is offered from introduction to level 6.
