We’re excited to be able to increase our current education offer in order to support more young people, between the ages of 16-19, from Richmond and Kingston, currently not in education, employment or training. Our programme, that offers a range of qualifications including functional skills in both English and Maths is designed to support young people to re-engage with education in a supportive environment at their own pace before progressing into further education, traineeships, apprenticeships or employment.
