The Centre specialises in serving people in the World of Work.  Our Training Department helps to develop the skills of people in the workplace and we run a number of learning programmes under contract with different providers across the north west region. 

The Centre has experience of running Skills Support for Redundancy programmes and Skills Support for those in work.  The Centre has  delivered work based learning for employees at various workplaces across the North West. This has included Tameside MBC, Crown Paints, Unilever and in the GMB Union.  Courses in English, Maths and IT are run from Adult Community Learning Centres (ACT Centres) that we have established in Accrington, Oldham, Preston, Liverpool and Blackpool.  The Centre has an active partnership with the Union Learning Funded GMB Reachout project for the North West & Irish Region providing a range of accredited and CPD routes for members and employees in the Region.

The Centre also links with our colleagues in Europe through GEPO.  In 2018  staff from St Antony's Centre attended and organised Conference on the theme of Digital Work, European Pillars of Social Rights.  As a member of EZA the Centre is invited to a wide range of the European Conferences across the European Community.
