The nature of work itself provides important benefits to the individual – regularity, structure, self-esteem, social and personal contact, normality and social status – all of which are major factors.

We give individuals the opportunity to plan future developments and work towards nationally recognized qualifications helping them to take greater control of their training and to take pride in their achievements.
