We offer learning courses and life-skills / employability courses across all ages. We also promote healthier lifestyle and cultural activities which can become a catalyst for more formal skills acquisition through our welcoming and sympathetic community centre environment.
We have supported over hundreds of services users through education and employability programmes over the years. We work hard to help people understand and overcome barriers to employment such as ill physical and mental health, language & social skills, benefits & debt, travel costs, childcare issues, family circumstances, inter-generational worklessness, recovering from abuse or substance misuse, and low levels of confidence.
Courses include: Talk English, ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages), BTEC Childcare, BTEC Health & Social Care, Beauty Therapy, First Aid, Food Hygiene, Fire Safety / Marshall and Health and Safety in the Work Place just to name a few.. Most of these are commissioned by LGCA, some are run by local groups and activities are also delivered by partner organisations such as Shipley College and MR Training for community benefit.
