Vocational Training and skills programmes

Programmes for learners aged 14 to 19-years-old including literacy and numeracy skills, work experience, vocational qualifications, personal and social development, and behaviour, attendance and attainment support.

We specialise in offering learning and training opportunities for students who, for whatever reason, don’t want to stay in a traditional academic environment. We provide our students with a different option – the opportunity to carry on their learning in a smaller, highly supportive environment where the focus is on providing learning and training options to help you gain the skills, qualifications and experiences you need to achieve your goals in life.


Catch22 College

The Catch22 College has been designed for learners aged 16 to 19-years-old and can be tailored to each learner’s individual needs, education and employment goals. We support a significant number of learners with learning difficulties and disabilities.

If you or your young person train with us, we will work with you to design a tailored learning programme which is matched to your interests and goals for the future. Our students can pick from a range of learning options from three key elements.

Key elements of Catch22 College

  • Functional literacy and numeracy skills
    We support learners to reach functional skills at Level 2 in both numeracy and literacy by the time they finish their learning programme.
  • Work experience
    We aim to support all learners into external work placements. This enables the development of good employment skills and with support provides an environment which enables learners to build their confidence and understanding of the world of work.
  • Vocational qualifications
    Local delivery teams carry out a detailed market analysis to ensure that our vocational programmes that they offer meet the needs of the local economy.
