There has been lots happening over the year in our study programmes including work experience with the RHS at Chatsworth Hall, community projects within Shirebrook and fundraising events at Alfreton!

There are also lots of exciting changes happening within the study programmes for the next academic year, with a focus on creating an individualised programme for anyone who attends, be it part time or full time. We will have something to meet your needs and help you work towards your future goals.

Many of our full time programmes will now feature an employability qualification which incorporates learning in the community, arts projects, construction and sports provision. You will also work towards improving your English, maths and computer skills during this three day per week programme.

In addition to this, you will work within small groups and staff that work hard to support you in recognising your potential and developing your skills for your future. With full time programmes available across Derbyshire.

We can tailor a part time programme to suit your individual needs with a broad range of subjects on offer. From qualifications such as English, maths and childcare to horticulture, cooking and pottery. You will also have an allocated mentor to support you on your journey with us.
