As one of the UK’s largest Adult Community Learning Providers, Lancashire Adult Learning (LAL) aims to provide learning opportunities for all adults across the region, from all walks and stages of life, to learn something new and shape their own futures.

FREE pre-employment training

In collaboration with Rossendale Borough Council, Active Lancashire and Lancashire Adult Learning, local employer Interfloor (highly successful flooring underlay manufacturer) welcomed learners at their factory based in Haslingden to provide the fantastic opportunity for FREE pre-employment training with guaranteed interviews on completion of the course.
