Our purpose is simple – to unlock potential and change lives

Our aim is to improve life chances through innovative and quality employment, skills and learning across four integrated teams: Young Careers and Pathways, Adult and Community Learning, Apprenticeships and Employment support.

We work ‘bottom up’ with residents community groups providers and employers to develop local innovate solutions together.

We are proud of our services and the difference they make – providing people with opportunities to grow through increased confidence, friendship, love of learning and improved careers prospects.
