About Seasiders

Conveniently located close to Blackpool town centre, Seasiders is a dedicated adult learning centre (19+), providing basic skills for both English speaking and non-English speaking learners.

Our dedicated team of highly qualified tutors deliver their subject specialism to ensure learners get the best learning experience.

Our courses are designed to help adults achieve their goals by offering flexible learning options to access the basic skills needed for both education and career progression.

Steps to Success

  • Enrolment

    Choose your subject and contact the centre to discuss our different options. You will attend an Initial Advice and Guidance interview, where you will complete pre-enrolment assessments and any enrolment paperwork.

  • Studying

    Once your level has been confirmed you will be assigned a class to attend; whether this is classroom-based or online. Regular attendance is key to success!

  • Achievement

    When your tutor is confident you are ready, you will sit an exam to achieve your qualification and receive an accredited certificate. Exams can take place earlier than expected based on your progress.

  • Progression

    On successful completion of your course, you can 1) progress to the next level of study in your subject, or 2) use your qualifications to access employment and/or other educational opportunities.

Book an Appointment

Face to face Initial Advice and Guidance appointments (IAG) are designed to assess student current capabilities, discuss learning needs, options available, complete any enrolment paperwork, and assign classes and/or start dates.

These appointments are important to ensure we get every learner on to the right level of study and can help every learner to succeed.
