The HCT Group Learning Centre has closed
After 25 years working in our communities, the HCT Group Learning Centre has closed.
The Learning Centre has faced a significant funding shortfall for some time and, as this is likely to continue, we have had no alternative but to close. This is a situation that has not been helped by the uncertainty caused by COVID-19.
It’s a really sad day for all of us at HCT Group. The work of the Learning Centre has been genuinely life changing for many thousands of people. Our learners – most of whom were long term unemployed and faced significant barriers to getting work – have gained the skills and confidence they needed to get and keep jobs. We’re really proud of what our learners have achieved. Over that time, we’ve also had the opportunity to work with many outstanding partner organisations along the way.
We hope that, in the future, the circumstances could be right for us to look again at providing these programmes. You can find out more about the closure of the learning centre here.
