More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

We focus our efforts on specific areas where we can have the most impact, in priority geographical communities of interest.

We are funded to offer these events to adults aged 19 - 64:
* who do not have a full level 2 qualification (5 GCSE'S);
* who live in parts of Patchway, Kingswood or Yate; or
* who work in the public sector; or
* who belong to a cultural or ethnic minority group

How we provide services -

A) Learning events are arranged once community workers have identified a need. These events are informal and practical to encourage adults back into learning.

If you are interested in doing another course, finding work or want to know what to do next please contact us on 01454 864613 or email community.learning@southglos.gov.uk.
B) Information and Advice - If you want to know how to get into you chosen career, improve your employment opportunities or how and where to get qualified locally, we can help you.
