All our courses promote personal development.
Placements: We also take on student work placements from Belper School. Derby College and Derby University. The Belper School students and other secondary School placements we get usually only last a week, so the level of involvement is quite basic but still a good experience and spring board into future work environments and further education. The college and University placements we take include more advance levels of Planning, Delivering, Recording, and Evaluating projects. We help students to reach a recognized good work practice, the students usually stay on these longer placement for an average of a term time.
