Where our small, specialist education provision started…
Learn 2 Cornwall Ltd is a small and specialist education provision and was established in 2021, however, was many years in the making!
Kyrstie decided to combine her experience of education, adult social care setting and day placements. She has been a teacher for over 16 years, worked with Mencap and created and managed another specialist post-16 provision which ignited Kyrstie’s passion.
We have seen many young people thrust into adulthood! generally with very little skills gained throughout education who then ‘fall off the cliff’ when they finish. This is what we want to change.
What is our vision?
Our vision is to offer as many skills, qualifications and opportunities as possible. We try to work on an individual basis where we can and take a holistic approach to becoming an adult.
What is available?
Learn2 Cornwall is a small, specialist education provider for 16-24 year old’s with an EHCP (Education, Health & Care Plan) based in Penzance. We offer:
- Qualifications and work experience on and off site
- Arts Awards
- Lots of open space,
- Gardens and,
- Peace and quiet.
Learn2 Cornwall are constantly looking to add more value to our provision. This will enable young people to try new things and be able to make more informed decisions. We also have small class sizes with high levels of support.
If you are a school leaver and are feeling overwhelmed about attending a large college environment? Why not come to Learn2 Cornwall first as a stepping stone. Learn2 Cornwall is an alternative to college, you can gain qualifications, work experience and independence. This then prepares you for the next steps in your life whether it be education, day placements or moving out. We work in a person-centred way to try and support young people to access as much as possible.
What are the academic levels?
No, Learn2 Cornwall offer qualifications from Entry Level 2, (meaning we may be able to accommodate learners from Entry level 1). Our education days are 3 days per week, however, we can offer 5 day provision. This is subject to funding either through County or Adult Social Care.
Transition to Adulthood
If you are nearing the end of education why not let us create a Transition2 Adulthood programme for you? This aims to increase independence whilst working with adult social care to create a smooth transition out of education.
Our programmes are available to all young people aged 16+ with an EHCP. We can be used as a ‘stepping stone’ into colleges for those who are not quite ready, as well as provide successful transitions out of education into adulthood, and much more.
