As the project draws to a close in St Helens

As the project draws to a close, I’ve been reflecting on our Learn to Grow programme, developments and lessons learned, and also on my own personal journey as a tutor and co-ordinator.

Adult Learners’ Celebration June 17 in St Helens

The team were really pleased that 50 learners from the project attended the annual ACL adult learners’ celebration (2/3 of participants!). 39 completed our next steps booklet and 4 received an award in recognition of their progress!

Invisible Ilness

We are a writing group who have come together because we are involved in a government- funded project, helping us to deal with stress and anxiety. Invisible illness became a common denominator. We all have first-hand experience of various types of physical and mental illness.

Photography and More

Hi All

We have been catching up with learners from year 1.....
