Appleby Training and Heritage Centre aims to meet the needs of its local community. We welcome your support and ideas to help us move forward. There is so much that can be done with our fully furbished derailed train! One of its carriages is currently used by two local women as a beauty salon! Another could be used as a cafe, say, or a place to watch scary movies in the evening (TV provided). There is so much scope for entrepreneurial imagintion here. We are the most unique workspace in Cumbria, and we would love to see your unique business ideas come to fruition here.
The Centre provides education and training courses for all ages and tastes, as well as a apprentice training aimed at young people to get them started in their careers. We work with two local schools, Appleby Grammar School and Kirkby Stephen Grammar School ,to provide additional learning opportunities for their students. Please see our website for a list of qualification opportunities available.
Additionally the Centre works in partnership with Carlisle College to provide apprenticeship opportunities to young people across the Eden Valley. We have purpose equipped workshops.
For many years our Centre has also worked with Cumbria County Council`s Community Learning and Skills Department to provide a wide range of accredited and skills (leading to a recognised qualification) courses as well as a range of leisure courses for adult learners. We aim to provide an exciting and stimulating range of courses and we are always willing to look to offer something new if you have a particular interest.
Appleby Training and Heritage Centre is a registered charity.
