Education & Training
Education is the cornerstone of Alt Valley Community Trust, and we have been delivering qualitative education and training programmes for over 30 years.
Our approach to lifelong learning is based upon the belief that education is a powerful vehicle to develop potential and improve opportunities in life.
Alt Valley Communiversity offers a range of post-16 education programmes, including apprenticeships, access to work traineeships, accredited adult education courses, and short-term adult learning. There is tailored support available to encourage progression to higher level learning and routes to employment.
In November 2016, Alt Valley was inspected by OFSTED and awarded a ‘good’ grade in all areas. The report stated that ‘senior managers and education board members have taken very good action to improve the quality of provision and outcomes for learners’.
