Salford Learning City

Salford Learning City

Alongside the University of Salford, Salford City College, The Lowry, Salford CVS and community groups the council is developing a model for learning.

Moving away from exams, tests, and qualifications, Salford's Learning City approach will support those who feel excluded from formal education and or want to continue learning in informal ways.

Using our community's knowledge and expertise, we will turn Salford into a dynamic, interactive academy of ideas with 'no strings attached' educational and developmental opportunities that will be called Salford Learning City. It is all about the joy of learning.

Learning is about curiosity, openness, raising confidence, challenging prejudices and developing self-discipline. Learning is a route to unlocking the secrets of the world we all live in. It is how we come to understand the organisations interacted with, make social connections and become involved in civic life. Learning is something which is good for all of us, regardless of jobs or qualifications.
