Mission Statement

Square300-7RISE is an employee-owned organisation focused on developing high-quality and responsive learning experiences for disadvantaged communities. We recognise that all individuals, of any age, should have the opportunity both to learn and to teach.

RISE provides education programmes for disadvantaged learners in Nottinghamshire – both formal accredited studies on the national qualifications framework and informal programmes for life skills, healthy living and lifelong learning.

RISE provides, or assist in the provision of, activities for recreation or other leisure time occupation in the interests of social welfare with the object of improving the conditions of life for the learning community.

RISE is a not-for-profit community interest company committed to community development through education, and to the development of a learning community of staff, volunteers, young people, families and supporters through a mutual membership scheme.
