To help people in the community improve their skills in technology, language, literacy and numeracy by delivering inclusive education at no or low cost and providing quality support.

To empower individuals to become confident and independent learners so they can gain employment, progress to further study if they wish or just manage their own independence.

The Intent of Solutions 4 Learning:

Education, Training and Employment issues - eg engage community members in life long education and training which enriches their lives. Some students have obtained traineeships, have had their skills recognized which has enabled them to move into paid employment or undertake voluntary work.

Community Building – by fostering and maintaining an extensive network of business leaders, community organizations, local councils, to help them support their clients where needed.

Family – assisting families to provide support to their children/grandchildren who attend school and are struggling with literacy and numeracy.

Health - promoting healthy ageing by encouraging lifelong learning and volunteering.

Volunteering – recruiting and supporting volunteers

Disability – assisting those with disabilities to acquire basic life-skills

Individuals whose first language is not English – teaching them conversational English and assisting them in obtaining their learners drivers permit so they can integrate into the community.
