Education and Training

Promotion of Education / Training / Employment

Northwest Leaving Care work in partnership with education and training providers across the North West.

All our young people work through a customised, structured independence living workbook, packed with both essential hints, tips and practical skills development, tasks and activities.

All our young people are actively supported to achieve BTEC and Edexcel qualifications whilst with us.

As a minimum our young people will work towards:

  • BTEC Personal and Social Development Level 2
  • BTEC Money and Finance Level 1 and Level 2
  • BTEC Home Cooking Skills Level 1 and Level 2
  • Edexcel English
  • Edexcel Maths

We work in partnership with further and higher eduation providers and training organisations to ensure our young people recieve information, advice and guidance which enables them to enrol on courses and training opportuities which meet their needs, skills and aspirations.

Northwest Leaving Care work in partnership with local employers

We work with local employers to identify work experience, training, apprenticeship and employment opportunities for our young people.  We provide support to both the employer and young people to ensure successful transition into work place settings and environments.
