Five good reasons why our courses and learning opportunities can suit you:

  • Open to all: We can help learners of any age: from our programmes for 16 to 18 year olds to our large range of courses, with no upper age limit, so whether you are just starting out in the world of work, want to get back into work or want to advance or change your career we could help you
  • Support: Our packages are tailored to your needs, and we are here to help you. Our tutors are open and friendly and will support you through your chosen course, our centres can offer additional information about other learning you can progress to and there is information advice and guidance on offer from our National Careers Service advisers too.
  • Local: Our courses are local and available in local adult community education centres and community venues across the county
  • Partnerships - being part of a large local authority we have access to a wealth of information and expertise in other departments, including the library service. The service also has an effective working relationship with other partners, such as JobCentre Plus.
