The Learning Institute

About Us


The Learning Institute provides opportunities for individuals and communities through high quality education, training and research programmes that challenge personal barriers and promote social inclusion.

Ethos and Values

We believe learning should be informed by research, guided by ethics and committed to communities.

It should:

  • offer the freedom to make empowering choices
  • remove barriers, to allow the freedom to make those choices
  • create the desire and expectation that the choices made will lead to positive change.


Based in the South West of England we deliver opportunities at venues in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, South Gloucestershire, Bristol and London. We offer a range of undergraduate and masters degree courses, initial teacher training, apprenticeships and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes.  Our courses are run locally, and are designed to fit around work and family life.

At The Learning Institute we treat all students as individuals.  We provide a nurturing environment with dedicated tutors and support for students, trainees and apprentices. We offer a variety of programmes using a flexible learning approach. If you are already working in the education or health sectors and want to further your career prospects, returning to education as a mature student, or if you are still planning your future, we may have a programme that suits you.

The Learning Institute also offers a choice of bespoke services for both primary and secondary schools.  These services include tailor-made support for head teachers, leadership development programmes and CPD training sessions.  All services are provided by our team of experienced education industry professionals.
