Through active engagement we create meaningful relationships and support everyone to achieve their potential.

As an independent training provider, we deliver free, government funded courses.  We are one of the few training providers who only offer funded courses (you can’t pay to train with us!), but that does not mean that they are of any less quality! They are all accredited and regulated and lead to a formal qualification upon completion.

Our programmes includes the Supporting Jobseekers in Cornwall Project which provides bespoke employability support and training. The COMPASS Programme for 16-24 year olds helps young people take the next steps toward employment or education, helping them get back on track.

Take a look at our website for more information.

Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer

Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer describes the provision that is available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their families.

Cornwall’s SEND Local Offer helps families by gathering in one place, the information that they need to know in order to make informed choices about the support they receive.

The SEND Local Offer section of the Care and Support in Cornwall website is also a good resource for the professionals working with children and young people with SEND.
