We aim to give participants the tools and confidence to make positive choices that allow them to reengage with their education.

Our SAFE Programme is delivered during term time, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. It will run until April 2025.

The freelance rate of pay is £120 - £160/day dependent on experience and qualifications.

Desired qualifications include LLA/HML/ML/RCI/LCMLA/Bushcraft Competency Award, First Aid and DBS.
