West Kent YMCA Training and Education

Our Training and Education project works with young people aged 16 to 25, who have Special Educational Needs or Disabilities, enabling them to gain vocational, personal and life skills with accredited qualifications, helping them back into school, further training, volunteering, apprenticeships or work - in short preparing them for adult life.


We use carpentry & joinery to engage young people & excite them about learning, life after school and their role and potential in the work place. This is backed up by every chance to improve Functional Skills (literacy and numeracy) as well as helping with personal & social development. 


We are blessed with an amazing workshop in Tonbridge which is well equipped and staffed by a dedicated, experienced and skilled team who provide every trainee with a mix of training & education PLUS one-to-one intensive support, building confidence, addressing individual concerns - overcoming barriers to learning.


Sport, outdoor trips, community projects are carried out by trainees to help them develop their team work, collaboration, communication.  We also offer trainees the opportunity to do a Duke of Edinburgh Award.


We are proud of the quality of our training, teaching, mentoring, tutoring & pastoral support.
