We identify gaps in provision and seek funding to create innovative programmes to enable more learners to progress, improve their skills and realise their full potential.
We provide a wide range of programmes: from basic IT to employability skills and careers advice, one-to-one sessions, group workshops, for all ages from 19 to 80-plus (see current projects for full details).
