Activate Learning is a pioneering education group that brings together secondary, further and higher education and schools, along with workforce training, management consultancy and social enterprise.
Our shared ambition is to transform lives through learning. It’s what sits at the core of who we are and guides our decisions.
And because connectedness is at the heart of our learning experience, we work with learners, experts in learning and business to co-create study programmes and build industry-relevant career pathways.
The focus is on collaboration and, as a learner with Activate Learning, you will need to take responsibility for your own learning. So get involved with us and help us to understand how you learn best, so you can achieve your potential.
While we like to think big, we also need sound planning to help us achieve our vision. That’s where our mission and corporate planning comes in.
"To transform lives through learning"
"To ignite confidence, expand opportunities, energise the community and generate prosperity"
