We provide an education service for the young people of Stockton and surrounding areas that require support and guidance to enable them to engage, participate, achieve and progress accordingly. A friendly, caring, supportive environment with an individualised programme to suit each young person needs

No specific eligibility criteria – Referrals are normally NEET or disengaged, no qualifications needed as support is available, looking to try another career direction, etc.

All referrals have an initial informal interview and are then offered a taster day to decide whether the programme is suitable for them, this can be their start date or a further date can be arranged to suit each individual. An induction / assessment period of up to 6 weeks is then undertaken where they find out more about the programme, chance to learn more about the centre, meet all centre staff, decide whether it is the right course for them, participate in the centre activities on offer and learn about Health & Safety, processes and procedures whilst on programme. A decision can be made during this 6 week period to determine suitability for the programme.

The building is not fully wheelchair accessible as there are steps at the front of the building and access to the first floor is limited. There have been some improvements made to aid auditory and visual requirements. A changing facility is available but space is limited and is on the first floor of the building with no lift access.  Arrangements would be looked at dependant on individualised need through risk assessment processes to determine accessibility.
