The course will provide students with opportunities to improve their skills and reach their potential enabling them to progress successfully onto the next stage in their life with increased confidence and self-esteem.
What our students say...."I enjoy this course because there is a lot of variety and we get to go out on visits. I've done work experience at St Mary's infant school and I've also been doing my Duke of Edinburgh Award." (Gemma Glover)
