Our tutors have all worked in industry and have a vast amount of experience in their field.

A main priority for the Centre is making sure the students have a pathway into further training, apprenticeships or college whichever is most appropriate for the individual.

The Centre will also build links with local businesses to offer work placements so the skills being learned can be put into actual work environments.

If any local businesses would like to visit to look around or discuss placements Contact the Head of Service Billy Bell 0191 4832003

The Centre will specialise in training students with SEND and Additional needs and will work with schools to build tailor made programmes.

The Centre can also be booked outside of the regular school hours if schools require sole use of the facility due to student needs please contact Mr Bell to discuss.
