Education & Training

What is Education & Training?

Education and training Programmes are run in our Centres, in partner Centres our we can assist you in gaining access and funding support to mainstream Education and Training Programmes.


I have no interest in education!

Whilst this is understandable considering many Survivors experience or lack of education as children while resident in one of the institutions, we encourage all Surviors look past the typical stereotype of education. We have run successful practical classes in Woodwork, Poetry, Literacy, Computers, Jewellery Making & Pottery. We even ran a class in Archery previously. We look at your wants and match them accordingly.
