Education for the whole community

Life-long educational opportunities – ranging from ESOL, basic skills, employment skills in sectors such as tech, renewable energy, sustainable building, through to arts and cultural education, would all enrich the town and help to make it both more prosperous and a more attractive place to live and work. There is a quick win opportunity with the asset transfer of Tod College to Todmorden Learning Centre and Community Hub. A relative small amount of investment could ensure that TLCCH becomes a viable and attractive learning hub which is responsive to the needs of the whole community.

  1. I fully agree with this suggestion. Calder College was a Community asset for many years offering a range of courses from supporting apprentices in the town to adult education with a crèche available to allow mothers to attend daytime classes.
    It was a fantastic base for Occupational Therapy; and classes in hobbies and crafts allowed people to meet and socialise.
    The hall was busy in the evenings with groups meeting there.
    Now anyone wanting to complete qualifications post 16 has to travel out of town adding travel expense and time to their commitment to learning.

  2. would be a great use of resources a community hub
    a building that could train and support young people with learning and become a centere of excellence
