Students at the school require an eclectic approach to manage their educational and behavioural needs and each student will have an allocated learning mentor on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis. 

As well as delivering a personalised curriculum to your allocated student, you will be required to help them make short trips out into the community on work experience trips.
