We offer individual support to learners and we welcome applications from young people who may not have had a positive school experience. Our small class sizes and determination to provide you with individual support has contributed to our excellent progression levels. Over 75% of our learners move on to additional learning or employment when they complete their time with us.
We offer individual work placements as well as group community projects for learners to gain valuable employability skills and make a positive contribution to the community.
As well as the study programme, you can also complete a traineeship for up to six months which includes:
- a work placement
offering developmental work experience
- work training skills,
for example CV writing, interview preparation and interpersonal skills
- qualification in maths
- a range of support and flexible training to help develop skills and progress quickly on to an apprenticeship or secure employment.

We offer a growing range of apprenticeships.
When taking part in an apprenticeship, the apprentice will work to a framework of certification, gaining a work-based learning qualification alongside a functional skills qualification and a separate technical certificate.
Our apprenticeships are accredited by City and Guilds, the most well respected awarding body by both industry and commerce in the UK.
Apprenticeships at Level 2 - equivalent to 5 GCSEs.
Apprenticeships at Level 3 - equivalent to 2 A Levels.
Each apprenticeship is made up of:
- a minimum of 30 hours
per week in the work place.
- an ‘off-the-job’
element (delivered either from CLASS premises or at the employer’s site)
building a portfolio of evidence made up of assessors’ observations and
underpinning theory, demonstrating the apprentice’s ability to work
independently to the required standard.
Please contact us for more information.
We pay a bursary to all students. These payments are weighted towards those who face the most challenging financial barriers to taking part in education. All travel cost is refunded and Child Benefit is not affected.
You can enrol at anytime and join our programmes at specialist centres in Mansfield, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Retford, Ollerton, Eastwood, Stapleford, Newark Library, Hucknall Library and our newest centre in Arnold Redhill Young People's Centre.
