The Benefits

Tutor helping 2 students to get an apprenticeship at Basingstoke's Study Centre
Giving you the skills and confidence to succeed

Life’s a bit like a circus isn’t it? We’ve all seen the trapeze artists and the tightrope walkers doing their stuff, but what if they fall? They have a safety net of course.

What about your school or college career? You didn’t set out expecting things to get tough so who catches you if you fall? Skills2Achieve does. 

What is Skills 2 Achieve?

Skills2Achieve is a programme to give you the skills and confidence to enter employment, an apprenticeship or full-time education.

You will be given the information, advice and guidance to make real life choices on how to move forward, while also making new friends. The programme provides the opportunity to build vocational skills and understand more about employment opportunities.

What's in it for me?

Skills2Achieve is a dynamic programme of learning, based on your individual needs.

We recognise that not everyone wants to achieve the same things in life. That’s why, we’ll tailor a learning programme to your needs.

After an initial assessment based on literacy and numeracy, your essential skill levels and learning styles are evaluated by a qualified tutor. Don’t worry though, this isn’t a test. This assessment is to see where your current skills are so we can understand how best to help you towards your goals. After the initial assessment, the programme will then be tailored to suit your needs, enabling you to grow in confidence. The goal for our learners is give them the boost they need to actively seek work experience and, ultimately, paid employment.
