Grow

The Community Learning service promotes Grow – Personal Development & Community Learning.

Community Learning in Lincolnshire, through its Grow courses, provides learning opportunities for personal development, cultural enrichment, intellectual and creative stimulation and enjoyment.   These learning opportunities are developed with local residents and other learners to build the skills, knowledge and understanding for social and community action. This programme is part funded by the European Social Fund.

We offer a wide range of courses branded with the G logo that engage adults in learning which supports and enables them to enhance their quality of life, play a full part in the development of the local economy and community and progress to other learning, training and volunteering opportunities.

The Community Learning Service provides learning opportunities that:

    • allow learners to develop their skills and confidence
    • encourage learners to progress to further learning, volunteering and employment
    • improve learner’s Employability
    • develop learner’s Community Leadership skills
    • develop and promote physical and mental wellbeing and social inclusion
    • support children’s achievement through the involvement of parents

    Creating opportunities to develop new skills

    The Community Learning Service delivers a wide range of learning opportunities that help people who are not in employment, education or training to develop the skills to gain employment and become ‘job ready’. These learning opportunities develop key personal skills, qualities and attitudes required by employers, as well as helping you progress on your chosen course.  This supports the needs of employers and learners in Lincolnshire, both now and in the future.
    The Community Learning Service also delivers provision which will allow you to develop new skills to support future career changes.

    Providing employability courses

    In addition to providing learning opportunities that support skills development, from brick laying to IT, we also provide specific employability courses which help you prepare for work. The courses are run by friendly, approachable staff who will guide you through your learning and help you reach your goals.

    As part of your course you will also receive information, advice and guidance to help you with future life choices. If you would like information, advice and guidance please speak to either your course tutor, learning centre staff or contact
