RALSS Classroom

Rutland Adult Learning and Skills Service (RALSS) is encouraging adults to make 2019 the year to learn something new or improve their skills through a wide range of academic and vocational courses.

Based at Oakham Enterprise Park, RALSS offers classroom learning and qualifications in English, maths, accounting and computers, as well as courses covering employability, life skills, arts and languages.

RALSS works in partnership with Peterborough Regional College to offer apprenticeships and workplace learning qualifications covering a wide range of sectors, including: 

  • Support Teaching and Learning in Schools 
  • Early Years and Childcare
  • Health and Social Care
  • Business Administration
  • Customer Service
  • Catering and Hospitality
  • ICT 

RALSS is also an accredited centre for the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), offering courses for AAT Certificates in Accounting Level 2 and 3 to open doors to chartered accountancy, university, self-employment and more. 

“For many of us, formal learning ends after we leave school. However, learning new skills, whether academic or vocational, can be tremendously rewarding, no matter what age we are. Our courses not only help to boost confidence but can play an important role in employability – whether you’re looking for work, trying to take the next step in your career or seeking a new vocation entirely. Success rates at RALSS are well above the national average, with a GCSE success rate of 97% for all learners. Furthermore, many of our Community Learning courses, such as maths and English, are absolutely free. If you’ve got a course in mind or just want to see what’s available, I encourage you get in touch now to find out more.”
David Wilby, Portfolio Holder for Education
