Man using computerThere is a wide variety of courses, combining activities in ways that make sure that the courses are both fun and interesting. Where appropriate, courses are accredited and we always support learners to reach their potential.

We use a range of teaching methods in our courses to provide a stimulating learning environment. For example, this may include the use of computers, cameras, telephones as well as specialist technology for people with more complex disabilities. We use interactive whiteboards and associated software to support our courses, valuable tools which encourage group discussion, interaction and communication.

We have seen the learners who attend our courses gain many different and valuable benefits including:

  • Increased concentration
  • Enhanced communication
  • Improved social skills
  • Increased self-esteem.
