About Alt Valley Community Trust

At Alt Valley Community Trust (AVCT) we have been delivering Education and Vocational provision for over 30 years and recognise how important it is to use Education as a means of unlocking a person’s potential.

North Liverpool Community College (NLCC) is the education and training arm of AVCT. Education and training is a key priority for AVCT where NLCC is providing accredited programmes which include study, traineeships  and Apprenticeships for 16-23 year olds designed to help young people and adults into real work and education opportunities.

AVCT currently delivers courses for Beauty Therapy, Hairdressing, Health Care Assistants, Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools (STLS) and for students who would like to work in the Early Years Sector we deliver Children & Young Peoples Workforce, Early Years Educator and Playwork qualifications.

In response to local needs, AVCT has designed and delivered a new Health Care Assistant course to meet employment demands of Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and we are currently in negotiations to expand this into other hospitals.
