We are an Alternative Education Provision that supports young people between the ages of 11 and 24 years of age to learn skills and gain qualifications. We also offer social, emotional and behavioural support to address difficulties. We work with young people and their families to help them be the best they can be, and progress in a way they never thought possible.
Our education provision supports those who face disability and / or disadvantage, and we work with local schools and colleges to enable individuals to learn new skills and learn ways of coping with difficulties.
We know that getting a qualification can be a really exciting thing and give huge sense of achievement to the individual completing it. We offer a number of qualifications or sections of qualifications through ASDAN or AQA, so we have a huge array of qualifications we can offer, not just around maths and English but around practical skills, and life skills.
We have in house counsellors and work holistically with each person and their families, so we support the whole family or care circle.
We also offer assessments and reports to enable schools and colleges to work with each person better and enable the young person to stay in mainstream education.

Personal Development and communication skills
To us relationships are everything! We all have them every day whether at work, home or school, and we know that positive supportive relationships enhance day to day life.
Positive relationships can be one of the hardest things to achieve, knowing the value of ourselves is key to building up our confidence and self-esteem, which in turn impacts our personal day to day life, and interactions with others and as such enjoyment of community life.
