The education programmes provided are mostly formal programmes, which follow the national curriculum. They include primary education and a number of vocational programmes at secondary level: gardening, catering, tourism, retailing, mechanics, IT, administrative and business studies. There are options to do a three, four or five year course and/or pick individual specialist subjects or modules. The majority of courses include some kind of practical work - this gives the students a chance to get an insight into their future jobs and perhaps even establish contacts with future employers.
In recent years, it has begun to shift the focus to informal education and lifelong learning.
