Our courses are affordable and easy to access, as they are delivered across the borough of Knowsley

Our courses help you to be successful in education, work, health, leisure and life, but they offer much more than that…


We help you to recognise what you are good at, unlocking new opportunities and helping you to feel great about yourself in the process.

Self Esteem

When you have healthy self-esteem, you feel positive about yourself and about life in general. It helps you become more able to deal with life’s ups and downs.

Personal Development

Being in learning helps people move forward in their lives, but everyone’s needs are different. We help you progress in a way that suits you.


As you progress through a course, you’ll face positive challenges that will help you build resilience, a proven way to live a happier and more positive life.

Mental Health & Wellbeing

We aim to empower the people in our communities to achieve better health and wellbeing for themselves and future generations.

Skills & Employment

Many of our courses are designed to help build work-based skills, giving you the chance to progress or even start a new career.
