Member Learning

Learning doesn’t need to stop when we leave formal education and if we want to move forward in a career then continuous learning is essential.

Try our free workshops and explore the skills you have, how to make the most of them and how to develop new ones.  Check out our upcoming courses to see what’s on offer.  Please note that all our workshops are currently delivered online using Zoom or Microsoft Teams platforms.

We also work with partner organisations to promote their courses which we know will benefit members. Take a look below.

You can find when these courses are running by checking out our upcoming courses.

Distance Learning Offer

We are pleased to offer a range of accredited Level 2 fully funded distance learning courses. These courses offer you the flexibility of studying from anywhere at any time that suits you.

Due to changes in funding in the West and South Yorkshire areas, where you live will determine which college you will be able to enrol with.  We have partnered with three colleges to be able to offer distance learning in our region.

Bradford College (must live in the West Yorkshire area to apply)

The RNN Group (must live in the South Yorkshire area to apply)

Leicester College (all other areas)

If you have any queries about this offer, please contact Rose on
