Learning – Learning is different for everyone.  It could be about gaining qualifications, it could be about learning how to write a CV.  For others it might be about gaining some practical skills and experience through volunteering. Or, if you can’t see the wood for the trees, it might be help to unpick your thoughts and ideas and learn how to plan and prioritise to achieve your career and learning goals.

“If I hadn’t got my maths qualification then I’d be kicking around Sherborne in a dead end job watching everyone else go off and do exciting things. Not that won’t happen…”

English and Maths – The Learning Zone is a regular two hour session for anyone who wants to get a L1 and L2 English and/or Maths qualification.  It takes place in our bright and informal computer suite in small groups of 2 to 3.  We have a team of volunteer tutors who are there to help you achieve – we’ve got a 100% pass rate.   It runs from 2-4pm on Mondays and Fridays and you’ll have access to computers and a tutor.  You can start at any point in the year and take the exam when you’re ready.

Individual Tutoring sometimes it might be difficult for people to get to our learning sessions. If that applies to you then get in touch as we may be able to arrange a volunteer tutors to give one to one study support at a time to suit you.

“It’s good that it’s 1:1 so I can work at my own pace. At school, the teacher has a whole class. If one person gets lost, there’s no time for 1:1 and so I got a step behind.”
