Following the Government announcement, we are pleased to share the latest information on the reopening of our centre.

It’s been a challenging start to the year for us all, but this update means we can invite learners back into our centres from March. We’re so pleased we’re once again able to support our local communities and help people find employment. Like everyone else, over the coming months, our focus is on safely reopening, so we will ensure all Government advice is followed and safety in the centres will be our priority.

If you’re not ready to join us in centre, you can still learn from home with our remote learning plan.
