Happy New Year from all at Blackburne House.

Now 2013 is underway – is it time you made this your year of transformation and success? Don’t let doom and gloom stories of recession in the media stop you from realising your true potential! You’re more likely to progress in your career or gain employment if you’re working towards qualifications and gaining new skills – let us help you to take the first steps…

At Blackburne House we’re here to support and inspire our students to go that extra mile and achieve the things they never thought possible – just take a look at a few of our students from 2012 here

We have courses across a wide range of levels and subject areas for women of all ages, abilities, and circumstances. We’ll invite you in for a chat, find out what you’re interested in, how you’d like to progress, and decide together on courses and levels which will suit you best. Many courses have free childcare  and help with transport costs if you’re struggling with young children or getting about the city.

We provide affordable, accessible courses to women, mostly in non traditional areas, giving them the confidence and skills they need to achieve their independence & equality.

Next Open Day is Thursday 18th April for enrolment onto September 2013 courses.
