Adult Community learning services have to deliver a variety of training to support the needs of all learners and abilities within their locality. We work in partnership with a number of Adult Education Services across the UK, and provide qualifications or units to meet the needs of your community and your learners.

All of our regulated qualifications are nationally recognised, so you can be assured that your learners will receive a high-quality qualification.

We understand that your priorities will change and are becoming more focused on outcomes, and upskilling learners for employment or to pursue higher education.

On this page, you’ll find all the information about what we do, how we can support you, and our latest news.

How we support Adult Community Learning:

Regulated qualifications

All our Qualifications, Apprenticeships and Access to HE Diplomas are recognised by Ofqual or the QAA.

Customer support

We are committed to meeting and exceeding our customer’s expectations. As a Gateway Qualifications centre, you will have a dedicated named team looking after you.


Our units and assessments are flexible for your delivery, whether that’s online, face-to-face or blended.


We work hard to ensure our qualifications are compatible with funding rules and provide updates on changes in funding policy via our website, newsletter, and webinars.

“Essential Digital Skills qualifications are a positive step forward in giving our residents the skills they need to access jobs. We wouldn’t have been able to offer them so quickly to our learners without the outstanding support we have received from Gateway Qualifications.”
