Do you want to improve your independence, learn practical and vocational skills?  Start you journey to independence with Excel in life.

We are qualified teachers with additional specialist qualifications and considerable experience with pre-entry and entry level learners and those with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND). Our aim is to 'level the playing field' for those who have found education challenging and may have had previous negative experiences.

We deliver the vocational area of Hair & Beauty together with the ASDAN Personal Development Programmes.  Our classes are small, providing a high teacher/learner ratio.  We offer tailored courses which are student-led to achieve optimum results.  Our courses are portfolio-based with no time limit on achievement.

All our courses are geared to healthy lifestyle choices and promote Preparation for Adulthood. Literacy, numeracy and ICT are embedded throughout. We build confidence and self-esteem as well as facilitating awareness of personal presentation.  All of this is delivered in a safe, comfortable environment with friendly, approachable teachers.  Our centre offers a fully-equipped salon offering a realistic working environment.

Join us now to start working towards programmes and / or qualifications and gain valuable work experience in our newly fitted salon. Click here to see our facilities, including our stairlift (lower gallery).
