We reach into communities where learners live and work to deliver learning in surroundings that they are familiar with and comfortable in.
Our smaller class sizes mean learners get more personal care, attention and support.
We teach to a person, not to a qualification or an award.
Both online and in-person, we believe in keeping group sizes down, making it easier for our learners to speak up, get to know their group and get actively involved in learning and sharing their own expertise.
This also allows our experienced tutors to tailor their approach to the exact needs and interests of their tutor group.
Between the expert tutor and a friendly and integrated tutor group, our learners develop a fantastic learning network and informal support safety net that on many occasions are with them for life.
We are committed to removing any barriers, so that individuals can improve their own life chances and have a positive impact on their communities and society as a whole.
We achieve this by working in partnership with over 100 community-based venues and local networks across the UK and with like-minded partners internationally.
We also engage with those who make education policy and funding decisions across England and Scotland, so they understand the importance of education to our learners – be that getting into work, progressing at work, or keeping their minds active and their connection with their communities live.
We truly bring adult learning within reach.
