Lifelong learning opportunities and pathways to employment


Together with our education partners, we are working on launching projects that make qualifications, training and routes to employment accessible to more people in Newark and Sherwood.

We plan to facilitate over 2,000 learners at the YMCA Community and Activity Village each year, providing exceptional learning spaces, and opportunities to gain practical work experience.
