Bolton College
Our Community Learning Ambassadors

Community Learning Ambassadors engage with the local community across Bolton, raising awareness of learning opportunities that could benefit individuals who want to upskill, or new learners looking to take that first step back into learning. They provide information on, and signposting to, a wide range of opportunities at the College’s Deane Road Campus and Community Learning Centres, including Adult Apprenticeships and courses from Entry Level to Level 4, as well as Higher Education. Their remit has expanded to cover full-time study programmes and Apprenticeships for young people aged 16-18.


Our Community Learning Ambassadors are friendly and approachable, and are always on hand to offer help and support. Meet our team….

Helping others get back into education is so rewarding, and is one of the highlights of my role. I also enjoy supporting in the classroom, which I’ve been doing for the past two years. I’d recommend getting back into education, it can be life changing.
