The Centres provide students with the opportunity to access NVQ or college courses.
Our students undertake a number of courses provided by local colleges.
Our Grown team has successfully supported students to complete an NVQ in horticulture through Hadlow College. Lecturers from the college attend our Centre to provide the course, as well as students travelling to Hadlow for instructional days. During these days at Hadlow, students have had the opportunity to learn to drive a range of equipment including tractors.
Students who work in the Café have the chance to take an NVQ in Catering and Hospitality. We have a number of students who have successfully completed this course in the past.
We also work in conjunction with Canterbury Technical College to provide more academic courses. A group of students recently completed a City and Guilds Life Skills Numeracy and Literacy course which also provided them with an ASDAN Award in Personal Progress level 1.
