Open Learning Centre and Support (OLC)
The Open Learning Centre (OLC) is a dedicated space for Haringey Learns learners. You can access computers with standard and specialist software, and other online resources for independent learning and practice. You can also receive support from staff and volunteers.
Haringey Learns has a team of Frontline Support Officers who will assist you with an initial assessment of your skill levels and provide impartial advice, so you are enrolled on the correct course.
The OLC is open five days a week during term time with at least one late opening.
Careers and Employability
The Open Learning Centre has a jobs board showing local vacancies and can signpost you to supportive services we also run employability workshops focused on career planning, job search strategies, CV writing, application forms and interview techniques.
Wherever possible we link with other services to provide additional support. For example, staff from Haringey Council and Public Health campaigns run workshops exclusively for Haringey Learns learners.
We recognise that for many learners money can be a barrier to successful study. Although we are not able to provide any direct financial support to our learners, we have an excellent record of helping learners to apply for funds to cover fees, equipment or course materials.
We also accept SPICE Time Credits as payment for Haringey Learns courses.
Learners can also gain financial and practical support in preparation for job interviews either from Suited and Booted. (male learners) and Smart Works (female learners). They provide top brand clothing and accessories to maximise interview success.

Haringey Works advisors will meet with you on a regular one to one basis to work with you and help you with finding the right job.
All Haringey Learns courses are designed to help you with your employability. Your tutor will talk to you about this and make sure that your career goals are included on your Individual Learning Plan (ILP).
You can also book time with a National Careers Service Advisor on Wednesdays by contacting Haringey Works on 020 8489 2969.
