Regulated Further Education College

The Learning Station is a further education college and training provider.

We’ve been providing regulated learning opportunities since 2015 and successfully delivered courses to well over 200,000 learners.

Technology First Learning

We’ve finely tuned our proprietary learner management system and made available hundreds of courses in a wide range of subjects and topics.

Our LMS enables our learners to access their course material across multiple devices and gives them the ability to communicate freely with their course tutors and assessors.

We're here for you

You won't be alone throughout your learning journey; our tag line, “Your Journey Starts Here”, is indicative of this; we’ve seen first-hand how education can light the spark needed for learners to grow, change, and discover new opportunities.

Our learner support team are available throughout the day to help with any questions you may have, and our expert and dedicated tutors and assessors are always at hand to support you in achieving your learning objectives.
