Programme Information

At SMS we ensure small class sizes combined with teaching assistants allowing learners to receive support which caters for a wide variety of individual needs with differentiated lessons to ensure nobody is held back or left behind..

At SMS we pride ourselves on how seriously we take diversity and equality. We strive to deliver a holistic approach to teaching and learning, where each individual is treated as such, and individual needs, aims and objectives are catered for. 

We offer a support network relating to a wide variety of life skills, and work closely with community links to ensure that our learners have the best opportunity to realise their full and true potential; giving them every opportunity to overcome barriers to their learning and develop resilient outlooks and prospective that will prepare them for life after the programme.

SMS works with relatively small groups of young people thus enabling the tutors to develop a strong working relationship with each member of the group, based on a sound understanding of their educational, personal and social background and their subsequent needs.

We have the ability to tailor the training to individual needs and through the continuous review process changes can be made without affecting the course fluidity.
