The Skills 4 work team have over 20 years experience in working with "hard to reach" young people in both a teaching and mentoring role. This comes from our experience working in the construction industry, hairdressing, student counselling, sports coaching and community projects.

We specialise in providing formal vocational BTEC and NVQ courses, over one or two years, in:

  • Construction

  • Hairdressing

Our courses are tailored towards students aged 14 to 16 and 16+ (NEET) who are disengaged from academic learning in mainstream education.

We bring a fully fitted mobile workshop or static hairdressing salon to your premises. From there we deliver our courses through a range of practical activities suited to the needs of your learners.


We have been involved in 14 Ofsted inspections (13 Outstanding and 1 Good) with specific reference to our work made in several. Our work has been highly praised by examination boards with comments such as; Gold Standard, Exceptional and Exemplary.

Our Vision

Our vision is for young people to become employable, by using transferable skills learnt through the construction and hairdressing courses and to consider themselves to be an active and responsible member of their community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to offer our excellent level of teaching to as many students as possible, to enable students to leave school/college with accreditation to allow them to reach their full potential.
