City College Plymouth

Local outreach centres for retraining and lifelong learning


The service is centred on the need of the adult learner to receive flexible training at convenient places and times. With the growth of over forty rural outreach centres, as well as centres in inner-city areas, employers’ premises and in people’s homes, the main focus of the training is on acquiring and updating employment skills and on access to lifelong learning. Courses provide a combination of high-quality training material with on-demand tutorial support, and new initiatives are being taken forward to take advantage of the internet and to keep at the forefront of outreach training.
