The Park is passionate about supporting and training learners to gain qualifications, skills and confidence to help them towards the world of work. We do this in a nurturing environment that considers the individual needs of our young people.
All vocational areas have real life work experience e.g. in our animal houses, soft play, on site painting and construction. .
Learners are all encouraged to gain additional work experience. Alongside each course you also study Functional Skills English and Mathematics or GCSE English, GCSE Maths and Employability Skills.
Opportunities for apprenticeships are also available.
Young people aged 14-16 can be referred to us by schools, Local Authority or other organisations if their current provision is not meeting their needs.
This will be tailored to the individual and will be for half a day. Usually Learners join in with our Post 16 provision and gain vocational qualifications.
We are on the Alternative Education Framework.
