Community

Our course frameworks link to both digital arts and media and ICT + health, fitness and wellbeing. The majority of our provision has transferable employability skills embedded at the core. 

We implement a ‘learning by stealth’ approach to education. Indeed many of our learners don’t always think they are learning, rather having fun and engaging in interesting activities.

We have a range of offers, from one-day beginner sessions to longer-term courses, which result in nationally recognised qualifications. We work with 350-500 individuals per year. We have six full time staff, four part time staff and a range of volunteers helping us to accomplish this work.
