THE FLORRIE

Education

Find out about our new education and pre-employment courses.

The Florrie Education Programme:

 

The Florrie’s education and training programme is targeting those aged 16-29 who are not in education, training or employment.

 

We aim to engage and inspire those who may have faced barriers to learning by providing a personalised learning experience and having; small class sizes, additional support for learning needs, study visits, expert witnesses and masterclasses, integration within the local community, and providing inclusive supportive learning environment.

 

Community Arts Administration and Business Administration Level 2

 

The Florrie will be offering NVQ Level 2 in Community Arts Administration and SVQ Level 2 in Business and Administration (vocational equivalents of GCSE A-C).

 

The qualifications will include employability elements such as problem solving, communication skills and workplace competencies and behaviours up-skilling.  Work experience and informal learning are also an integral part of the programmes.

 

The education programmes will link to live creative projects that The Florrie and our collaborators are working on. For example, work experience will allow our learners to apply their community art skills to the development and exhibition of Roger Dean’s Homes for the Future.  Learners undertaking a business and administration qualification will have an opportunity to gain valuable work experience at The Florrie or on work experience places with partners such as the health sector.

The Community Arts Administration programme takes place Mondays & Tuesdays 10 – 3.
