At Craftworks we believe everyone can make a contribution to society, no matter their ability or background. Each person is of value. We provide a practical learning experience aimed at enhancing skills, providing qualifications, and equipping young people for a positive next step into adulthood. We work with students who have Education and Health Care plans, and those who prefer to learn through project-based work, and incorporate the Maths and English qualifications within these projects.

Working with the community for the community our college works with each individual to look to understand their needs and deliver a service that is high quality and empowers the student. We have small class sizes with a focus on practical and interactive learning. In addition, everyone participates in work experience opportunities linked to their course as well as the job aspirations that each student is working towards. This specialist provision is particularly suited to students who find traditional large college sites, not for them.
