Specialist Facilities

We have a strong focus on employability, preparing students for the challenges of work in their chosen area, e.g. a Traineeship  / Apprenticeship, or applying for Further Education. Our Work Coaches support learners with advice and guidance about suitable progression routes, helping arrange internal and external work experience placements. 

What makes us really special is the effort we put into helping learners with social skills and coping mechanisms - helping them build confidence, reduce anxiety levels, and integrate into small groups. We work closely with The Prince’s Trust and other local providers, providing fun activities through the summer holidays; learners also take part in fundraising / community projects to foster a sense of ‘belonging’.
