Animal focussed land-based vocational training.
Hands On is an integrated programme of farm, environmental and land-based activities designed to build young people’s confidence and self-esteem, address challenging behaviour, develop new skills and raise aspirations.
This project is aimed at young people who learn better through ‘doing’. Ideally suited to young people not coping in mainstream curriculum whether it be through poor school attendance, low or under achievers, people with low confidence or self-esteem, with additional needs or exhibiting challenging behaviour, and for people interested in future careers in land-based industries.
Achievements are recognised through national vocational qualifications:
City and Guilds Level 1 land-based qualification in Animal Care or Estate Maintenance
City and Guilds Level 2 in Animal Care and Level 3 in Animal Management
The project is designed to be attended on a regular basis, up to 3 days per week, in conjunction with school, tutoring or other alternative provision.
Cost £90 / person / day (as of 1st Sept 2019)
City & Guilds one-off registration fee £200
If 1:1 care is required, support must be arranged separately. Transport from a central point can be arranged.
