Our Strategy.

We have developed a new ACL strategy because lifelong learning matters. It is a way of telling the ACL story, with a clear focus on who we are supporting, where we are doing it, and how we deliver our courses. As a service we need to be ambitious, sustainable, and continue to make a difference to people’s lives.

Our strategy has a strong focus on levelling up which is important to us for financial and economic reasons, but there is also a strong argument that a person’s potential should not be defined by where they live or their past academic experiences. We believe that individuals can define their own destiny, and that ACL plays a role in helping people do that.
