Coronavirus Update May 21st 2020

Our staff are working remotely, keeping our students on track with their qualifications, and more importantly, helping them to stay positive in the current situation. 

The management team have also been working remotely, making sure we have all the right plans, procedures, risk assessments and equipment in place for when we are able to re-open. We are taking this opportunity to improve the infrastructure of the site with plans for two new large polytunnels, landscaping around the construction unit, converting "Steve's shed" into a disabled access classroom space, and installing a new teaching space for learning independent living skills.

All of this will enable us to provide safe spaces for our students when they return/join us.

Follow us on Facebook for photos of developments, and to enjoy the antics of our animals!

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE APRIL 20TH 2020

TST remains closed due to the national lock down.

The online Homework Portal is now active through the button on the website homepage (scroll to the bottom of the page). Or if students have asked for paper copies of work these will be sent through the post.

Tutors are continuing to do a fantastic job supporting students with both academic work and pastoral care via telephone and text.

Although there is no date yet for re-opening, the management team are working on an action plan to ensure TST can re-open promptly and safely when given permission to do so.

Welcome to Transferable Skills Training

Transferable Skills Training (TST) is an education and training centre specialising in teaching vocational skills to young people and adults. TST was established in 2004 to work primarily with young people who have fallen outside mainstream education or training. We have a flexible and individual approach to re-engaging these young people, helping them to gain vocational qualifications, and to progress into further training, education or employment.

Where needed, our learners are given full support with all aspects of personal and social development alongside their educational programme. We have an open-door counselling policy where students can access help at the point of need, and we will arrange more specialist counselling where needed.

TST has a rolling programme of education, whereby learners can engage with us at any point during the academic year.
