All clients complete our own in-house training programme, which covers life skills, preparation for work and health and safety. On completion of this programme, you’ll receive a certificate of achievement.
We’ll also take you through a vocational profile and employability assessment while you’re training, which will help us to guide you into roles and opportunities that suit you best. This will also include practical skills like creating CVs and interview techniques.
In our centres in Cottingham and Sewerby we have a whole range of activities that you can get involved with.
Gardening and horticulture
Both our bases offer opportunities for you to see if you have green fingers. At both sites you can learn about maintaining a nursery garden in quiet, leafy surroundings.
Catering and hospitality
Our Cottingham site gives you the opportunity to get involved with running a café, and provides practical training in catering and hospitality.
Woodwork and construction
Also on our Cottingham site, you can try your hand at construction and woodwork in our fully kitted-out wood workshop.
