Action Learning is an Alternative Education centre based in Essex. We cater for primary, secondary, special educational needs and adults! We pride ourselves in giving all of our students an opportunity to undertake practical learning experiences, which can also be linked to Nationally recognised qualifications and Functional Skills exams.



What makes us different and unique?

  • Students can start with us from the age 8 - even adults can attend.
  • It doesnt matter what time of the year the student enrols
  • You do not need any formal qualifications prior to starting
  • We tailor a plan to suit the individual and their needs

We are recognised approved centres with AQA and ABC Awards. Currently deliver the AQA Unit Award Scheme and ABCl Awards Qualifications, along with Functional Skills from Entry Level 1 through to and including Level 2 where appropriate.





We provide specialist help and support designed to increase confidence and self esteem, encouraging interaction between our students, adults and peers.


We work alongside community and public bodies, private companies, and other voluntary sector organisations, to help us deliver our expanding range of learning, and knowledge building experiences to our students.  


As well as the courses and practical learning experiences on offer at the centre, we also provide work experience.
