Gareth Phillips, Strategic Director at EDI, said: "Adult learning isn’t just about improving basic skills to help people get jobs, it’s also about helping people reach their full potential once they are in a job – whether that job be in a theme park or in an office.

"It’s about celebrating success and achievement and ensuring people feel valued and skilled in what they do – whatever that may be. Working life doesn’t have to be a daily grind – it can also be exciting and fulfilling!”
