Harrogate Skills 4 Living Centre



We offer a 12 month full-time supported internship programme for 16-24 year olds with an EHCP. Working with a range of local  employers we aim to offer individuals work placements for up to 3 days a week with additional teaching of English and Maths functional skills plus other relevant employability skills training where appropriate. Travel training to enable students to get to their work placement may also be provided if required.

We are also developing several enterprises (a cafe and chocolate making business) with the aim of developing skills, knowledge and confidence in a safe, secure and supported environment.

After the 12 month programme students can then continue on our supported employment scheme.
