The Cumbria Training Centre (formerly Age UK Training) was established in Barrow in 2002. At that time we had one small contract to provide basic ICT skills to unemployed clients throughout the Furness area on a mobile computer bus. Since 2002 we have grown year on year.
After Age UK decided to close the training division in March 2016 Nicola and her dedicated team decided to open the Cumbria Training Centre independently from April 2016.
We have a successful track record in collaborating with a vast array of employers, public bodies and intermediary agencies, individuals, business and service providers.
Most recently we have worked with The Edge and were highlighted as having the most progressions within the Cumbria contract.
