Other notes

Calat offer vocational and accredited courses to young people with additional needs and EHC Plans– we tailor courses from our mainstream and ALDD courses to suit individual needs.

Courses run throughout the year and do not always have to start in September. Teaching is provided in small classes and within a nurturing environment, and support is available in the classroom for young people who need help to access their learning. (Please note that some courses may be delivered either wholly or partly on-line during the Coronavirus pandemic, due to social distancing measures).
