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.
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.
The key elements of the Catch22 College are:
- 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.
We have Catch22 Colleges in the following locations:
- Bishop Auckland
- Great Yarmouth
- Kent Maidstone
Catch22 have recently made the difficult decision to close our College provisions in Newark, Stanley and Swanley. However, we continue to deliver Study Programme Vocational Courses from the above locations. Please contact staff from the above to learn more or fill out the form below.
Catch22 College is accredited with the national matrix quality standard – an outcome-based accreditation promoted by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills for organisations that offer high quality advice and guidance services.
