Skill Up Sessions

MAES / Manchester Adult Education Service are offering Skill Up sessions where residents can come for between 1-6 sessions to learn anything they need re digital. Sessions are face-to-face across venues in Manchester (and hope to stay open even after this Thursday restrictions).




People will need to fill out on short online form. It used to be a drop-in but due to Covid, learners do need to book in advance and no obligation to attend all 6 sessions.

LAB Project (Learn Achieve Believe)



I wanted to let you know we are taking referrals now for our online LAB Project course that starts on 30 October. 


The LAB Project is a free two-week confidence building and work skills course for anyone aged over 19, unemployed and with a Manchester postcode. 


This digital version of the highly successful LAB Project (Learn Achieve Believe),  which has motivated and up skilled learners for 25 years, aims to keep people connected, get them back into a routine and equip them with that confidence to move forward. LAB offers a unique blend of creative challenges and tutor mentoring to help learners match their skills and interests with further training, volunteering and current job opportunities. 


  • Runs over Zoom over 2 weeks

  • Monday - Friday 10am - 1pm

  • Participants will need internet access

  • £50 voucher on completion 


A wide range of participants may benefit including :

  • People who may need to participate in online interviews for training work in future

  • Recent graduates or college leavers 

  • Parents and carers who are looking to get back to work

We are thrilled to announce the opening of a community cInema and film club just set up in Northenden.  It's called 'The Block' and can be found at West View Court off Royle Green Road.  They will be screening evening performances on Thursdays, and some afternoons they will be running 'Feel Good Cinema' which are screenings for people experiencing memory loss issues including dementia.  Not only is there a large screening area, but you will also enjoy full surround sound!  


Tickets cost £4 and include the first tea/coffee and biscuits.  

Getting Here - Transport


There is parking available outside the cinema with a car park at the front and back.  The cinema is close to bus routes on Longley Lane and Royle Green Road.  From the bus stop on Royle Green Road, it is only a three-minute walk to the cinema down 'Greenway' and West View Road. It's a 10-minute walk from Palatine Road, if you take Church Road to Royle Green Road then Greenway on your left.
