Taking Our Achievements and Successes Together (TOAST)
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)
TOAST is an educational programme, designed by and for young people, who are 16 - 18 years old or up to 24 years old with an EHCP, it is delivered by Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change, in partnership with V Learning Net.
Students undertake employability and functional skills qualifications as well as learning life skills and undertaking work experience. Study programs are individually designed to ensure each student gets the education and training that is most relevant to them. We believe in keeping class sizes small, with a maximum of 10 students per class, with at least two members of staff to support students and offer extra support where required.
Sessions are held at The Elms, Redruth and The Bank, St Austell
