Apprenticeships and Training Courses in Leigh

Leigh is one of the larger towns located between Manchester and Wigan, with a population of around 50,000 people and several high schools either in the town or in the nearby villages of Astley, Atherton, Golborne and Lowton. Although the nearest railway station is in Atherton, there are plenty of ways to reach Apprenticeships and Training Courses in Leigh via car along the A580 or via the recently opened guided bus route from Manchester city centre.

Leigh has an industrial heritage as a former mining town, and this still shapes the landscape in locations like Pennington Flash, so it’s no surprise that for many local residents, vocational learning is the preferred way to start a career in the trades.
