​Neighbourhood learning

​We work with a number of organisations to provide free courses that will help you develop the skills and confidence you need to progress onto further learning or employment. 
We are keeping COVID-secure measures in place across our buildings to protect our staff, residents and visitors

Please continue to wear a face covering if you can and maintain social distance in our buildings. This includes our libraries, leisure centres and learning centres.

You can read the Government's current COVID-19 guidlines on its website.
