People learn with us for lots of reasons. You might be looking to get your first qualification, becoming more confident in use of numbers, improving your written and spoken communication skills, helping your family or getting back into work.

You can join a small group to work towards your own learning goals. The first step is to contact us to make an appointment to have a chat about the kind of learning you would like to do. You could also get a taste of learning by coming along to one of our free short courses.
