Do you want to return to work, change career or start a new job after taking a break to look after family? St Helens Council’s Adult and Community Learning Service (ACL) can help you take the first step.


From your first contact, ACL will support you along the road to achieving your ambitions. An initial advice and guidance session will ensure that your first step is right for you, whether it’s a small step into taster sessions or a leap into a qualification route.


Free courses include Skills for Employment, Preparing to Work with Children, Working in Customer Services, Preparing to Work in Care, and Introduction to Volunteering workshops.


Short courses are held locally in the United Reformed Church in Ormskirk Street and include the following introductory workshops:

If you are not sure which path you want to take, or you don’t feel ready to enrol on a longer course, don’t worry, ACL also provide short confidence building to help you to take that first step.


If you are interested in any of the courses above or would like information on other courses that we offer please call ACL’s Park Road Centre on: 01744 677315 or 01744 677328
