This is a project for 16-19 year olds with lower support needs and provides a variety of bespoke skills courses to support learning and development alongside social opportunities within the community.

We offer a smaller, quieter environment for learners one day a week that can be adapted to suit the needs of the individual. 

Most of our skills courses will run for approximately 6weeks and follow a planned scheme of work. We aim to empower the learners, reduce anxieties, build confidence and independence and develop skills which will be transferable as they approach adulthood.

Social activities are also based around young people’s interests and have previously included paintballing, bowling, footgolf, cinema, badminton and museum visits.

Current courses available include:


Money Management

We will be running a pilot course on Money Management in the Easter holidays.

The dates for this are as follows: Easter Half Term – 3rd, 4th & 5th April 2023

Other courses planned for the future include:

  • Pre-Employment and Volunteering
  • Travel Training
  • Communication and Social Skills
