Founded in Liverpool in 1979, Riverside Learning & Education Centre offers tools, support and guidance to individuals who wish to get back into the world of work. One of our main goals is to help you believe you can achieve, offering a helping hand to overcome challenges, and providing guidance as to your options and the opportunities our courses can create for you.
We predominantly work on a 1:1 basis but can also work as part of small groups to ensure you receive the support you need. This support frequently results in increased confidence, self-worth, and ambition.
Learning at Level 3 or above will be funded by an Advanced Leaner loan (similar to university loans and with the same rules), and we can assist with the application process for this. With a team that is with you 100%, we’ll help you get the most out of your course. Email our team today to discuss your ambitions.
Start Education offer courses in Digital Design, Games Design & Testing, Employability, Business & Enterprise and more. All of of our courses are able to be completed fully online and at home.
How it works:
We use an online learner forum, through this, all of our learners are able to chat with everyone on the course, request one to one meetings with a tutor when needed and can also share their work with other learners to discuss and get feedback when necessary.
It couldn’t be easier to set up either, once you enrol on the course, we will send you an invite to our server. Once you accept the invite, all you have to do is make an account and then join the forum.
Join our mission to make study choice transparent, globally. Every year at Study Portals, we change the lives of millions of students.
We enable students to explore all their study options in one place and find the best fit study programme that matches their needs, goals, and preferences. We work with over 3,750+ universities, business schools, law schools, and pathway providers eager to diversify campuses and attract the right students globally. Education choice continues to reach a broad, global scale. More students are keen to study abroad than ever before.
Study Portals began as a spin-off from a couple of large international study associations. It was born out of frustration, a total lack of information and overview of the fast-growing number of international Master’s programmes in Europe.
In 2007, Mastersportal.com was developed and proved to be a roaring success. Soon after, Bachelorsportal.com, PhDportal.com, Shortcoursesportal.com, Distancelearningportal.com, and Preparationcoursesportal.com followed.
In 2019, we helped over 36 million students around the world to explore study programmes and make an informed choice, throughout over 200,000 courses at 3,750+ educational institutes across 110 countries.
We are driven to realise a positive contribution to our world with our platform. Beyond that, the Studyportals Foundation realizes charitable projects related to our mission and our team.
Learning for the performing arts
The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts opened in 1996 to forge a new approach to performing arts training. It was co-founded by our Lead Patron Sir Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty, Founder, and is housed in his old school, which underwent a multi-million pound renovation to transform it into a state-of-the-art performing arts higher education institution.
Today LIPA is an acknowledged part of the UK’s higher education provision for the performing arts, recognised and ranked alongside institutions a lot older. LIPA provides learning for the main skills needed for putting on a show (performers and those who make performance possible), uniquely blending specialist and generic skills.
LIPA offers degree courses in Acting, Applied Theatre and Community Drama, Creative Technologies & Performance (BA (Hons)/MArts programme), Dance, Management of Music, Entertainment, Theatre & Events, Music, Sound Technology, Theatre and Performance Design and Theatre and Performance Technology. We also run full-time one year Foundation Certificates in Acting, Dance and Popular Music and Music Technology.
To further develop your skills we offer full-time one year masters-level degree courses in Acting (Company) and Costume Making.
We train students for a future of sustained work. Most recent figures have shown that over the most recent four year period, 89% of LIPA’s graduates are in work four years after leaving, while 78% work in the performing arts. To achieve this, our curriculum is constantly being revised.
We offer a range of programmes, including Foundation Certificate courses and undergraduate courses offering BA (Honours) Degree programmes for applicants aged 18 and over.
Our courses are validated by Liverpool John Moores University
