SS&L - changing lives through learning
SS&L are a Community Interest Company delivering a range of skills and leisure provision across Somerset. We are embedded in the Community, and have 13 Centres which deliver a range of Community Learning activities, as well as Apprenticeship, maths and English, Access and other qualifications. We also work with businesses to support the skills development of their staff, and to identify skills gaps. We also lead the Community Learning Partnership for Somerset, which provides grants to voluntary organisations to deliver learning in the communities in partnership with ourselves.
SS&L left the local authority in Somerset in Aug 2015. We have been delivering learning and training in Somerset for over 30 years, and currently work with 12,000 learners annually. We work in partnership with over 60 community groups and organisations to ensure our provision is embedded in the community. We also work with 500 employers to support skills training within the workforce.
