Learn Your Way - The alternative to college education - Truro & Penzance sites available
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
A post 16 programme of study for young people funded by Adult Education aged 16-24 and who have an Education, Health and Care Plan.
Students spend 3 days a week with us, 2 days in the classroom and 1 day as work experience. We are working with some incredible partners; Chaos Café in Truro and Moorvue Rural Centre in Penzance.
We have been running this programme for the past 3 years and all students have progressed onto either more independence in their lives or trainees elsewhere. This programme is now expanding and is able to offer more variety in the way of work experience by working with Chaos and Moorvue.
We also provide learning support assistants to ensure that your child has the right level of support they need.

- How our service supports providers / schools / colleges
We are an independent specialist provision which offers an alternative to large colleges. We are a small provision and only take between 8 and 15 students per year.
We offer a blended learning programme of classroom and work experience to in order to enable young people to progress either into work, volunteering, further education or more independent living.
- Support at key transition points
We attend as many transition events as possible within local schools. We also offer holiday provision to aid continuation of learning and engagement.
We also work with CSW and Pluss as standard when students are due to leave our programme as well as identifying early on what their next steps may be. With that in mind we ensure that we hold our own transition event to support their next steps.
- Other local or national support
- Resolving disagreements, mediation and making complaints
Complaints can come directly to us. If this is not satisfactory/possible then there is a complaints procedure that sits within Adult Education.
