The Alliance of Leading Learning

In 2007, cross-trust school The Marches School in Oswestry became the first school within Shropshire to achieve Training School status. Designed as centres of excellence for training, Training Schools have become specialist hubs for adult learning, providing a venue for high quality professional development. Over recent years, The Training School at The Marches School, now known as the Alliance of Leading Learning, has flourished and has now expanded into brand new, modern, fully equipped facilitates.

Situated on the fringe of the main school site, the self-contained suite of training facilities benefits from a semi-rural location, only 30 minutes from the motorway network and just a few minutes’ walk from Oswestry town centre. In addition to delivering a wide variety of training courses including First Aid, Food Hygiene, and Child Protection, the training centre is available for hire throughout the year.

With its own car park and access, the newly refurbished accommodation is fully equipped to host and deliver training to a large range of audiences. Whether you’re looking for a venue to hold a conference, a meeting room to host a business lunch or a computer suite to deliver a training session, the Alliance of Leading Learning can provide it.

The three, spacious, modern training rooms also have access to a suite of offices, as well as kitchen and bathroom facilities. The conference rooms can accommodate up to 40 delegates comfortably in a bright, airy setting. The rooms offer interactive white boards and video conferencing, as well as a suite of flat screen computers.

A variety of refreshments can be provided, including tea and coffee, a wide selection of buffet style lunches and hot meals.

The Alliance of Leading Learning provides a high quality service, at a very reasonable and affordable rate. Please contact the team at the Alliance of Leading Learning today to discuss your individual needs and requirements. Staff would be delighted to give interested businesses a tour of the stunning new facilities and discuss the opportunities in more detail.
