Overview

The organisation operates under the direction of a governing body and is mainly funded by means of private tuition fees and donations. We also hope to add additional funding from the Learning and Skills Council, the national government quangos responsible for the post-16 education and training sector. We are acharitable organisation registered with the charity commission for England and Wales.Our curriculum reflects the principle of 'lifelong learning'. It is varied with the full age range including; 16-19 years olds on full-time vocational provision; young and more mature adults on full-time and part-time professional skills, access and higher education courses; adults of all ages on basic skills and return to study courses; persons with disabilities and the entire age population, up to and including pensioners, on leisure and recreation courses of all descriptions. We pride ourselves that our courses reflect the diverse, multi-cultural character of the area, which we serve.We currently operate from our main centre at the Big Peg, Jewellery Quarters and a couple of smaller host centres 'off-site'. The organisations centres are all centrally located.We are in the first phase of a substantial transformation, looking to locate to much larger facilities to aid our growing learning and training community population. Our plans are to include for example, developing a state of the art learning centre and to promote strong community relationships. We hope our development will be completed by 2012. We hope to become one of the more specialised education and training organisations in Birmingham and expect the numbers of project initiatives, have a significant and positive impact on the organisations continuing ability to deliver training to the local community, including employers. Our 7 day a week learning programmes will start initially on 1st October 2011 and be fully implemented by September 2012.As a place to work, the organisation is a complex, stimulating and demanding environment to all staff members. It has the capacity to throw up issues and pressures on a daily basis but it has an equivalent capacity to generate a high level of job satisfaction for those who find it rewarding to meet and deal with many issues and challenges. We hope to add to our portfolio within the near future, the ‘Investors in People' award to add to the organisations status as a centre for learning excellence. To this end, the organisation remains ‘an organisation of life changing experience'.
