NCFE Approval!

Another string to our bow ensures the best possible outcome for learners.

We are excited about achieving the NCFE accreditation. What this means is that we can now deliver higher-level qualifications to those undertaking in house educational courses, offered at Hornbeam Park.

Our push for NCFE recognition began in November 2018 and was driven by senior tutor Tom Brown, who has been with Disability Action Yorkshire for four months.

There are currently 24 students undertaking a range of different courses, which are run all year round, with Tom teaching functional skills, maths, and English.

Winning this accreditation from the NCFE is fantastic news for us, and means we can now offer more courses, to more students, at a higher level than previously taught.

We have held ASDAN (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) certification for some time now, and this latest accreditation gives us another string to our bow. We aim to help disabled people live their lives as independently as possible, and for many having a job is key to this.

However, gaining paid employment can be difficult, but having qualifications, in particular, vocational ones can help open the door to the workplace.

We offer training in a wide range of subjects including Sports and Fitness, Leadership, Employability, Maths, and English, and we work with individuals to find the most appropriate qualification for them.
