Course Details

Our 12-week programme (minimum) offers the following

Embedded soft skills such as reliability and resilience, functional skills, and IT with an option of undertaking accredited courses.

Allotment – learners will gain an understanding of the allotment and the true concept of ‘Food to Fork’ by using our current ‘Cook with Ability’ programme, they will also build genuine relationships with the allotment community.

Health and Wellbeing – We offer a specialist mental health and wellbeing service with a focus on positive emotions, strengths, and values to enhance the young person’s well-being and resilience, which will then help them with social inclusion, loneliness and to reengage with local communities, especially those living in rural areas.

Volunteering – we offer a volunteering programme, initially at the allotment and then widening to include placements in other appropriate environments depending on the learner’s requirements.

We tailor our offer by working with specialist partners to offer advice and guidance on a whole host of issues such as benefits, housing, debt management and careers guidance.
