At Merryhue Farm, we aim to support young people by giving them a caring environment to learn and thrive in. This falls under the Transferable Skills Training programme.
Transferable Skills Training (TST) is an education and training centre specialising in teaching vocational skills to young people. TST was established in 2004 to work primarily with young people who have fallen outside mainstream education or training, offering a provision to 16-19 year olds alongside young adults with educational healthcare plans up to the age of 24. 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.
