Before enrolling every individual is offered one-to-one information, advice, and guidance with our specialist coordinators so that we can identify starting points and goals for the future. This also ensures that the most beneficial and relevant course of learning is chosen and learners have the appropriate support to succeed.  

Learning is delivered through practical and engaging learning activities which encourage learners to be self-advocates, make choices, become more independent, express opinions and work with others developing valuable skills that can be transferred outside of the classroom. Learners benefit from a safe, supportive, and inclusive learning environment where mutual respect is embedded.  

Learners progress to become more confident and independent in their everyday lives and may continue further learning, move on to volunteering or employment after attending courses.
