Learning & Skills

Everyone should have the same opportunity to learn and achieve their ambitions in life, in their communities and at work

Enabling the community to thrive

Transforming Lives

The Lamp plays a vital role in supporting the community in East Lothian on their journey to learn new skills. Alongside the economic benefits, it reduces loneliness and makes people happier, healthier, more confident, capable and resilient. Put simply, learning and skills transform people's lives. Education is not just about what goes on in the classroom. It is about having the ability to support the community to develop wider outcomes for their own personal lives which, in turn, support and have an impact on their local communities, local businesses, and therefore the local economy.

Lamp of Lothian has hosted The Haddington Bridge Centre for over six decades, providing a much needed educational facility for all to use. This allows us to offer a wide range of activities including the Motorcycle Project, music, exercise, dance, adult learning, children's' activities, youth clubs and U3A to name a few. We look forward to continuing this great relationship long into the future.
