With this project we aim to provide help for those young people who, through an unsteady or erratic school life, may have missed out on basic education (Functional Skills). We do this through a programme called adaptED where we utilise the skills of mature volunteers with backgrounds in the education environment. This is open to young people in the Sutton Coldfield and immediate surrounding areas.

This is enacted through regular sessions that aim to help youngsters achieve their basic Maths and English, which will give them the opportunity to apply for Apprenticeships, traineeships, further education or employment. The young people are selected on a referral basis.

Please get in touch to refer someone.
