We cater to all levels of educational experience while our programme effectively considers and responds to each learner’s needs, ability and learning style. Our courses include:

  • Communications

Further and Higher Education

The Matt Talbot Community Trust aims to enable our participants to access further higher level educational opportunities that they may not have had access to until coming to the organisation. We support our participants by providing one-to-one mentoring support from qualified staff and volunteers.

Mentors support learners to understand subject matter, meet assignment deadlines, correctly lay out assignments and to research effectively. This ensures a smooth transition from supported education models into the mainstream system, providing financial assistance through the Community Employment training budget, while also supporting participants to access funding through other organisations.

We work with learners to explore their interests and choose an appropriate education route to achieve their goals.
