A NEW learning centre has been opened by a Grimsby-headquartered provider in the town.
Adult Skills HQ now provides free English, maths and IT training for eligible delegates from Provincial House on Victoria Street.
For more than a decade, the education provider has been delivering life-changing qualifications to adult learners across the north of England, who want to upskill and enhance their career prospects.
Richard Hallam, managing director, said: “For the past 10 years we’ve had our head office in the town, but we’ve been busy growing our learning centres in Greater Manchester, Yorkshire and the Midlands.
“I have always wanted to open a learning centre in Grimsby, and now feel the time is right to open something on our doorstep – so we can concentrate on helping the people of Grimsby and Cleethorpes.”

Every year, In2wrk, Adult Skills HQ’s sister company, delivers more than 4,000 qualifications to people who want to improve their literacy, numeracy and digital skills. But with the opening of Adult Skills HQ in Grimsby, the number of people they deliver English, Maths and IT qualifications to is set to soar.
Jack Johnson, marketing and communications manager, said: “We’ve been helping people upskill and give their CVs a boost for years, so it is about time we started focusing on people in our home town.
“You’d be hard-pushed to find an organisation who’s more passionate about helping people improve their every-day skills, so they can stand a better chance of finding sustainable and fulfilling work.
“I think that’s what sets us apart from other providers: we take a real interest in all of our learners and look forward to the moment when they receive a nationally-recognised qualification. That’s what this job is all about.”
