Learning 4 Life tutors are very supportive. They realise your struggles and try their best to get you to your goals at your own pace.

Learning 4 Life is Llamau's education and learning programme. We offer learning opportunities to young people aged 16-24 in a friendly and supportive setting. We aim to enhance self-esteem, develop skills and assist learners to move towards a more confident and independent future.

How does Learning 4 Life help young people?

Learning 4 Life supports young people to gain the skills and confidence they need to build an independent future for themselves. We help young people to gain qualifications and accreditations, to gain work placement and volunteering opportunities and we provide support towards employment and further learning.
