This is a course designed to meet the needs of a range of:

  • young people who are engaged and willing to participate, but for whom the main barrier to participation is an inability to work in groups due to high anxiety
  • young people who are engaged and willing to participate but previous behaviour is proving to be a barrier
  • young people who have consistently not engaged in learning due to perceived barriers, lack experience of learning and the associated expectations of learning environments.

There will be opportunities to complete practical and creative activities with a focus on healthy lifestyles and sustainable futures.

There are no formal entry requirements, though realistic learning targets would need to be agreed.

Staff will work closely with individuals to explore and develop employability, personal and social skills alongside maths and English. As the course develops, there will be opportunities to access vocational tasters in areas, including:

  • construction
  • automotive
  • hair & beauty
  • hospitality & catering.


On completion of this course, you could progress on to other courses (subject to entry criteria being met), traineeships, apprenticeships or employment.
