Orion Pax Institute`s Training Centre in Edmonton Green, North London, provides good facilities and resources for learning. This includes a well equipped IT Training Suite. There is also a small reference library for the use of learners and staff, within the Conference Room.
And the large Edmonton Green Library, nearby, with whom OPI has close links, provides a friendly, quiet and relaxed environment in which our learners can study or carry out research.
Learners are encouraged to join the Library so that they can borrow books and use the computing facilities available.

Facilities for learners with disabilities
OPI`s premises can be accessed via a lift by learners who are unable to use stairs and there is a toilet for those with disabilities. There are adjustable height tables for those who require them and some pcs and laptops have screen filters to aid users who find looking at a screen difficult. Read/Write software is installed on all our computers to aid users who have difficulty using word processing packages. Other equipment is available through the college Administration Team or the Lead IT Tutor.
Staff are briefed and trained to anticipate the needs of learners with difficulties and disabilities and to provide assistance.
OPI provides additional learning support for our students as needed, either through learning assistants, or specialist tutors and other staff. If you believe that you have a need for this, ask the Administration Team or your course tutor.
