The Open Doors Learning Centre is an alternative education project, which works with those young people not attending mainstream education. The centre was established in 1998 to meet the needs of young people at greatest risk of social exclusion, experiencing difficulties with education, self-awareness and social and personal development.

The young people are aged between 14-16 years old, and are and drawn on a co-education and cross community basis. Open Doors delivers a range of academic, vocational and creative qualifications and programmes to enable young people to progress into further education, training and employment.
