Adult Skills HQ provide English, maths and IT courses to the people of Grimsby for free.

Adult Skills HQ Learning Centre

For more than a decade our organisation has been delivering life-changing qualifications to adult learners across the north of England, under the name of first, Business Advice Direct, and more recently, in2wrk. But in late 2017, we decided to open a learning centre in the town we know best – Grimsby – and call ourselves Adult Skills HQ.

Our mission is a simple but important one: to help people in Grimsby to upskill in English, maths and IT and improve their long-term career prospects along the way.

Over the years, we have developed a reputation for delivering some of the best adult training in the entire country. We’ve gained this reputation by constantly making sure that our standards stay sky-high and by developing mutually-beneficial relationships with important community-focused organisations, such as the local Job Centres, Housing Associations and vocational suppliers in the areas we operate.

We don’t just provide our learners with nationally-recognised qualifications, we also play an important role in improving the day-to-day lives of the people we help. The time spent in our centres, working with people in similar situations as them, help our learners to develop their skills and all-round confidence in themselves.

We’re very proud of what we’ve already achieved since we first started to deliver adult training in 2008, but we’re even more excited about the future of Adult Skills HQ and the impact we can have in North East Lincolnshire and beyond.

It doesn’t matter if you’re someone who wants to improve your key skills and find work, or you represent an organisation that shares the same values as our own – we can’t wait to hear from you.
