We continue to offer a modular workshop plan, inviting our young people to join us for the workshops they are interested in.  We are working hard behind the scenes to keep opening up learning opportunities across the city, exploring our growing vision of Bristol becoming a City of Learning. Our wider partnerships continue with the Science Creates Outreach team and with online provider Lyfta.  Plus, we are enjoying opportunities to collaborate with the team at The MoSAIC and having an intern from University of Bristol facilitating our Language Cafe.  During this pilot year we continue to enjoy using Jamaica Street Studios 'Kit Form' space and the Orange Tree Hub to meet whilst actively exploring finding our own space. All our sessions are aimed at young people age 12+ .

The Hub workshops and city wide opportunities are to support parents whose children are not in full time school by supplementing the learning taking place at home and elsewhere. Whilst we offer some wonderful learning opportunities in the Hub, the responsibility for providing a full-time education remains with the parents.

Our community is growing and we are always open to new young people joining us.   For our regular workshops we are always keen to meet potential new learners to ensure we can welcome them well into our community.  

So if you are booking for the first time, please reach out and say hello.  

If your young person has SEN then it is essential we have a conversation before you book,

we are a small team and need to ensure we can support your young person well.

Email us to say hello.
