Everyone taking part in this ‘real live’ work activity has the opportunity to achieve Nationally Recognised Qualifications awarded by City & Guilds / NPTC. Assessments are carried out by our own teaching staff in the natural work environment.
Help is available for those who require a little extra support. And, for those who have more complex needs, one to one support can be provided. Individuals are allowed to train and progress at their own pace. Tuition is mostly practical with numeracy and literacy embedded as routine. Extra help is on hand, suitable even for those who may struggle reading or writing.
Attendance patterns can be arranged around other commitments e.g. college or social activities. Individuals may choose to attend any number of days from one day up to five days per week to suit their needs. Transport can be arranged subject to availability.
