Coronavirus (COVID-19) has brought a lot of uncertainty into our lives and we wanted to let you know we’re still here to support you.



We’ve made many of our courses available online, to help you stay safe while you stay home.

As part of Gateshead Council, your health and wellbeing are our priority at learningSkills. So following the Government’s advice, we’ve closed our centres for now. Our team are all working remotely though, and are on hand to provide any help you need.

If you’re already one of our learners, your tutor will be in touch soon and provide course materials online or by post. We’re still committed to keeping you on track and supporting your learning needs.

If you’re not one of our learners yet, why not have a look at the range of workshops and courses you can join? While we know these are challenging times, it’s also a great time to learn something new. Whether it’s a course to help you progress at work when you return, a workshop that helps you manage your stress, or a class that unlocks your artistic side.

Stay safe and thrive online.
