Our work is based on the ethos that everyone has something to contribute - both to their local community and local economy. We all have skills to offer & yet some feel they have little of value to give. Our experience has shown that this issue is at the root of both economic & social exclusion.

The learning programmes offered by Govan Initiative are designed to offer local people the opportunity to participate in learning of their choice in venues close to their homes.
Whilst it is hoped that those who so wish will develop a learning plan to lead them into work or formal education/training at college, this is by no means essential. So if you just want to learn for learning's sake - Go For It!
Most of what we offer is a result of requests from local people - so if you don't see what interests you or what you fancy - just ask! We'll be only too happy to add new programmes to our catalogue.
