YOUNG PEOPLE’S STORIES

The following are a selection of case studies chosen to reflect the variety of approaches and positive progression pathways that have been established.

Transition from education towards the world of employment is not a single event but rather a unique journey that can be planned and supported. Whatever stage our young people are at we work with them to find the appropriate route towards their future goals.

We have worked with participants of a very wide variety of ability levels, support needs and backgrounds, and have worked with them all to establish a positive route forward, whatever their starting point.

Here are some of our young people’s stories…
