We have exciting news to share! This summer we’re opening our new training centre in Shepton Mallet, to provide the local and wider community with high quality courses and workshops to help improve lives through learning.
Shepton Mallet is well-placed in the heart of the Mendips, ideally situated near Wells, Bath and Bristol making it accessible to many people. It’s one of the oldest market towns in Somerset with many quirky, independent shops within walking distance of our centre.
Kathryn Baker, CEO of SS&L says, “I’m very much looking forward to opening our new centre in the heart of Shepton Mallet where we will make community and adult education accessible to local people. This has never been more important than now, as we start to recover from the COVID 19 pandemic.“
The building we’ve chosen was previously the Tourist Information Centre in the High Street, which has been unused for some time. It’s undergoing extensive refurbishment (see images below) and will boast a state-of-the-art training room. We can’t wait to welcome you through the doors!
Tracy Aarons, Deputy Chief Executive, Mendip District Council said, “It’s great to see a new centre opening in Shepton Mallet where people will be able to easily access community and adult education. The investment in this new facility will bring opportunities both locally and to the wider community. We look forward to welcoming and working with Somerset Skills & Learning and wish them every success in their new location.”
Shepton Mallet will be our 5th centre in Somerset, together with Taunton, Bridgwater, Yeovil and Frome. We are also continuing to expand our distance learning and online offer, which means accessing SS&L courses throughout Somerset has never been easier!
