About Us

Everton is one of Liverpool’s, and the UK’s most deprived communities, with economic and social exclusion ingrained over many generations.

For the past 32 years, EDT – from its base at the heart of the Everton community - has helped to combat this by providing support to local people and organisations, helping them to access employment, self-employment, training and education.

EDT’s training department specialises in first-rung provision and we have assisted over 3,000 individuals into employment, enterprise and formal learning by operating a wide range of advisory and training initiatives. We offer a one stop shop service of education and support from entry level to full level 3 qualifications - with our commitment to IAG very much at the core of everything we do.

We are accredited by Matrix, ASDAN, BCS, SfA, OCR and Edexcel, which allows us to endorse all we do with nationally recognised qualifications. Our key strengths lie in our ability to mix informal assessment with recognised formal assessment and diagnostics, to develop innovative learning programmes that address real needs.
