Liz Mayor (Director of Studies and Head of CEF) welcomes students at home and overseas students  to the work of the Forum.

 The Classical Education Forum provides a range of adult education Humanities and Arts courses through weekly lectures, saturday schools, revision schools, trips and we will shortly be introducing our new online CEF Discovery Courses.  If you are interested in online courses please contact us via email or facebook

Based in the Cardiff area, our mission is to provide a range of adult education courses taught by professional lecturers and post-graduate students to all who are interested for self-improvement, relaxation and fun.  This will be extended to a wider audience through our future online courses

So whether you are looking for something specific, or just interested in learning something new and meeting like-minded people, why not enrol on one of our adult education events?

CEF currently has two centres based in Cardiff: Thornhill Centre on Excalibur Drive, and Canolfan Beulah in Rhiwbina.

Tutoring Testimonials

We were very lucky to have found Liz at such short notice to get our daughter tutoring for her GCSE History exam. She felt relaxed and in a comfortable environment and felt that Liz was of a very high standard with her teaching and caring nature. Our daughter felt prepared for her exam and felt that she had learnt more within a short period with Liz than she had since September in school. We will continue to use Liz from the beginning of next term to see our daughter through her final year. Claire Heseltine

'I really enjoyed my sessions with Liz who always made them fun and enjoyable. Liz's experience as an ex examiner made her invaluable as she knows what the exam board is after and conveys very well the necessary technique required. My work was always analysed in detail and her feed back was very constructive' Mum Sue and Student Max

My experience with Liz' tutoring was extremely beneficial as she taught me many skills that I needed in preparation for my exam. She also boosted my confidence and as a result I became more proud of my own work and effort. Liz always praised my hard work and gave me thorough advice and suggestions on how to improve any errors. I feel I have honed my English Language Literature skills. I am happy and grateful to have had tuition with her. Aisha J
