Learning 2 Work is a Key Stage 4 programme operating in Exeter and East & Mid Devon that offers a package of learning and training courses for those young people in Years 10 and 11 who are finding it difficult to fully engage in the standard curriculum and are at risk of disengagement. The target group of students display a number of the following characteristics: under-achievement, poor motivation, social or emotional instability, unsatisfactory attitude and/or attendance and these often lead to behavioural problems. Any one of these factors is likely to contribute to students not continuing in learning or training at the end of their statutory education.

L2W provides a range of learning experiences aimed to interest, motivate and re-engage these young people. The courses include Work Skills, Outdoor Adventure and Personal Development programmes as well as a range of vocational courses in Automotive Skills, Catering, Construction, Hair & Beauty and Landbased Industries. The providers include Bicton College, Exeter College, Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education, PGL, Tiverton High School and the Youth Service. These providers work in partnership with the schools to offer a range of one day courses which complement the delivery of the core curriculum in schools.
