Welcome to Work Skills South West
Work Skills South West was established in 2011 to work with disadvantaged young people, young people and adults with learning difficulties and disabilities, and adults with mental health issues. It is a fully supportive and inclusive environment, offering help with all aspects of personal and social development.
Part of : Together We Can Succeed
This programme is a joint venture between Work Skills South West, Transferable Skills Training and Batting On, set up to re-engage vulnerable young people who have disengaged from education. Each organisation brings a different set of expertise, knowledge and skills to the programme, working collaboratively to produce this award-winning programme. Together We Can Succeed has gained widespread acclaim and was filmed by the BBC for Comic Relief 2015.
Battling On uses the expertise and experience of veterans to help young people tackle the barriers which have prevented them from engaging in education, developing emotional resilience, coping strategies and self confidence.
Transferable Skills Training offers work-based training programmes in construction, land-based skills, animal care and work preparation
