Welcome to Activate Learning

We are a forward-thinking education group working across further and higher education, schools, apprenticeships and training. We transform lives through learning.

Activate Learning is a forward-thinking education group that aims for far-reaching, progressive change and impact through learning. We work with you as individuals, helping you make the choice of career pathway or course that’s right for you and your ambitions.

We recognise every student has a different story; people come to college having had different experiences. We want to capitalise on these and help you grow by building effective relationships with you all.

Activate Learning’s approach is to work with you to understand how your experiences have shaped your approach to learning, as we know that how you feel about learning is just as important as what you learn.

We will combine our expertise in delivering technical, vocational and academic education, with our high level of industry engagement and connections to some of the best-known companies—not just in our region, but in the world—to provide you with a complete educational experience where you feel supported and confident in your abilities and inspired by the opportunities available to you.
