Our aim is to provide a safe, supportive, highly specialised educational environment within this specialised provision.
Our inter-disciplinary staff teams work with students from day one to remove barriers to learning and find creative solutions for each individual. Communication strategies and good use of assisted technologies enable students to set their own learning goals and monitor their progress. The facilities use real-life settings so that students can improve their skills for living independently. Cumbric can also offer a wide range of vocational opportunities both on-site and in the local community.
Cumbric offers an alternative education for pupils who have been permanently excluded or those at risk of permanent exclusion from school. We provide a full and engaging education curriculum that has been created to meet the individual needs of the pupil. Our aims and objectives are to work towards a relevant outcome that will provide apprenticeship/work opportunities.
Working with students from age 14, we identify each individual’s preferred career path and offer education, apprenticeship tasters, work experience and all relevant certificates to facilitate future employment opportunities.
Getting apprenticeship ready BEGINS AT AGE 14 YEARS.
