Learning for Life

If you have a disability or learning difficulty and want help to progress into employment or independent living - we can help. Our Learning for Life programme is built around you and your interests.


On a Learning For Life course you could spend time developing life skills such as cooking, travelling and meeting new people.

You could gain work experience in our on-campus cafe, or if you're ready to move into work, a Supported Internship with a local company might be more suitable. We work with employers including Dance City, Vue Cinema, Tyne Riverside Cafe and The Biscuit Factory. You could even progress to an apprenticeship.

We also offer anĀ autism base room and community rooms, where you'll find a safe space to relax and make friends between your lessons.
