Focus On Learning brochure

Welcome to Oldham Lifelong Learning

This booklet gives you information about the subjects we offer and some of the support services and facilities we provide.

We can help you gain the skills you need to get a job, move on in your career or perhaps start your own business.

You can also develop new skills through our community and family learning programmes. We will support you at every step of your learning journey, whatever you choose to study.

Our commitment to our learners and the high quality of delivery were recognised in Ofsted’s ‘Good’ judgement in December 2021 and more recently in June 2022 when we were reassessed to the Matrix Standard of Quality in information, advice and guidance.

Many of our learners have changed their lives by joining a Lifelong Learning course. You can, too.
