Enrol in the Youthgrow programme

YouthGrow is a 'life ready, work ready' programme for 16 - 24 year olds. We help young people to to build on their skills and find a job that’s right for them, while learning other useful stuff like cooking, planning and budgeting.

Based in a commercial nursery, the group and individual activities undertaken have immediate, practical application.  Young people have the opportunity to:

  • Gain real work experience
  • Learn and use practical life skills
  • Work as a valued member of a team
  • Take responsibility for key aspects of the nursery
  • Achieve nationally accredited qualifications or units of study.

YouthGrow understands that people learn in different ways and provides a supportive, hands-on approach to education to meet the developmental needs of a young person.  Our experienced team work with students to make sure they get the best out of their experience with us.

At YouthGrow we use the words "life ready, work ready" to describe our graduates. On completing YouthGrow they will feel more in control and better prepared for the next phase of life's journey.
