Craftworks

Craftworks is a pre-apprenticeship programme aimed at young people who are not in education, training or employment.

Craftwork comes alongside 16 to 18 year olds who may have found mainstream education not the most suitable learning environment.  Craftworks seeks to give them work experience in grounds maintenance, horticulture at our farm sites, retail and customer service skills.

Students can work towards the bronze level Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and keep learning with tuition in functional maths and English.  For those with a special educational needs they may take part aged 16 – 24

Craftwork can be accessed in Faversham, Iwade, Dover, Sittingbourne and Ashford.  As part of the work in Faversham, participants will be able to help restore a Victorian walled garden.

Craftworks run throughout termtime, Monday to Friday.
