Midlothian Council Lifelong Learning and Employability (LLE)

We help young people, adults and families improve their life chances, through the development of skills for learning, life and work.

We provide lots of different opportunities: youth work, adult learning, family learning, vocational training, employment support and work experience.

All our activities are based in the communities of Midlothian.
