East Sussex Institute of Learning and Development

We understand today's employment climate, that's why we are here for you!

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused millions of Briton's to loose their jobs, assets and livelihood. Many employment sectors within the UK will never be the same again, leaving millions jobless and lacking the skills to move their careers into different sectors.

University and college courses can be expensive, with the average student within the UK paying over £9000 in course fees, for one year alone. As well as the huge debt students face there is also a huge time commitment required, leaving many to be unable to afford to stop working and embark on educational courses.

That's why the East Sussex Institute of Learning and Development was created. Our main goal is to get people back on track, or to re-skill themselves in a new job role in a way that is affordable, accessible and delivered at a time that suits you, the learner.

We have designed our courses to give you, the learner, the necessary skills, knowledge and know-how to upskill yourself in a multitude of different job roles, at a fraction of the price of University or College courses. We believe that our courses will give you the skills to be able to get your foot in the employment door, without taking time out of your busy schedule/
