What Else Can I Do?
Enrichment opportunities provide our learners with the skills and experience to enhance their personal development and employability skills.
These activities ensure all learners are able to realise their full potential. They also help students achieve a positive progression to further study or employment. Not only that, but they’re a great way for students to meet like minded people and make new friends too.
