City learning centres

Knowsley City Learning Centres provide ICT led curriculum activities and projects to schools either in a CLC or in your school. Lesson and activity plans are available and a resource booklet is published to help schools to plan the support they want (bespoke sessions can be developed on request). We offer a wide range of mobile technologies for use in these sessions – arrangements can be made for schools to loan or hire the equipment for independent use. CLCs can also offer eSafety awareness sessions to learners. All of our activities have been developed and modified, in partnership with schools, to meet specific requirements and are designed to be age appropriate. Sessions are also available for teachers, governors, parents etc. We also provide a comprehensive staff ICT Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme and training opportunities.

What our customers say

‘We have worked with the CLCs for several years and each year they surpassed our expectations, none more so than when they delivered sessions to our upper juniors. The sessions were engaging and challenging, yet set at such a level that all children could access the work. We are delighted with the service the CLC provide and would recommend them wholeheartedly to any establishment looking for a bespoke, professional and purposeful learning experience.'
