Got the qualification I wanted and my confidence has gone through the roof.

Did you know the Council’s neighbourhoods and learning service helps over 3,000 adults learn new skills and interests every year?

We have courses in health and well being, information and communication technology, art and craft, modern foreign languages, skills for life and work, family learning and community development. Just over a quarter of our courses lead directly to qualifications or you can work your way up to one through higher level courses.

Many of you have developed so much confidence, you’ve been able to take qualifications you never thought you’d achieve, succeed in job interviews and develop skills that help you in everyday life.

I made new friends, met lots of new people and I feel so much healthier now.

You’ve made new friends, got involved in your communities and even improved your health by getting out and about and taking up healthier lifestyles. Some of you have even helped others with their health by taking part in dramas or organising events.

Enjoyed the course – and then you helped me get a job

And lots of you have benefited from our employment agency and our information, advice and guidance service in getting back into work.

But don’t just take our word for it.

Ofsted inspectors came in recently and gave us a glowing report. We’re outstanding when it comes to people enjoying their learning and achieving and good at helping them progress on to other courses, qualifications or work and outstanding when it comes to helping them get involved in their community.

That means if you learn with us, you know you’re getting top quality courses and we’ll do all we can to help you achieve your goal




Don't be shy, say hello. We'd love to hear from you.
