Children & Young People

Work Skills Learning finds and nurtures each child’s unique spark.

Work Skills Learning offers two pathways to young people who are currently out of school. We have our own independent provision for 16 – 25 year olds at our two learning sites – Manor House and Stonebridge. We work closely with local authorities and The Southover Partnership to provide education for children and young people who are not in mainstream schools, working across multiple locations.

Work Skills Learning offers individual, personalised courses specially tailored for children and young people. We create a structured programme to follow students’ personal strengths, and interests, while encouraging our learners to expand their horizons and encounter positive challenges. Work Skills Learning supports children and young people to become independent learners and thinkers to ensure that they attain the highest qualifications possible.
