Todmorden Learning Centre and Community Hub (TLCCH) is the community group which now runs Tod College. The building, formerly Todmorden Community College, was transferred to the community benefit society from Calderdale Council in the Spring of 2021. The transfer came after 5 years of campaigning, and fundraising by the community to saved the building from being bulldozed.

The aim of the centre is to create a community space for the benefit of the people of Todmorden. It now offers a rapidly growing range of provision for local people and community groups including opportunities for learning, sports facilities, office, studio, and workshop spaces.

TLCCH aims to provide local young people with the learning and skills they need for jobs in the new green economy. The college has successfully secured National Lottery funds to set up a Climate Challenge College (CCC) as a faculty within Tod College. The CCC will deliver skills training in natural building, agro-ecology and renewable energy systems.

We aim to make Tod College a real hub for the community, offering space for meetings, workshops, rehearsal space, conferences, children’s clubs, societies, dance groups and more. With the refurbished gymnasium and the large hall, we are sure that many of the sports clubs that already exist in the town, and those yet to be born, will love the new facilities.

Catherine Bann, Secretary TLCCH

This is a huge win for Todmorden. The Centre will be the first of its kind in the country and will once again make Todmorden a national leader in community based innovation – this time in subjects that will combat climate change and provide much needed skills and jobs.

Barbara Jones, TLCCH Board member
