About Us

Impact College has extensive experience of working in North Manchester for the past 10 years, and with Learndirect since 2001. We understand the challenges faced in creating appropriate learning opportunities for a culturally, and socio-economically diverse community. Impact College is based on the main Cheetham Hill Road about two miles from the centre of Manchester. This area has an exceptionally diverse cultural mix with approximately 33 community languages spoken in Cheetham alone.

Impact College Learning Centre is targeting eight adjacent urban wards in North Manchester including five wards in Manchester that rank amongst the most deprived wards in the country. Our ITC Centre in Waterloo Street is only 20 minutes walking from Manchester Piccadilly.

In response to the Government and Learning skills Council strategic priorities, our service:

  • Target learners without a first sfl qualification.
  • Strengthen the range of learning opportunities for adults returning to education.
  • Supports adults to access Skills for Life programmes.
  • Help learners to get a first ICT qualification.
