Building Opportunities is a service which is run by Ashcroft School.
We are an excellent option for students, aged 14-19, who prefer to work in a practical environment. We offer industry recognised qualifications at levels 1 and 2 in a range of specialist areas including; joinery and carpentry, brickwork, painting and decorating, and more. We are a registered centre to deliver Ascentis and BTEC qualifications. This way we can create a tailored package to meet the needs and interests of each individual student.
Our Stockport based facility allows students to engage with a better suited curriculum and gain confidence along the way. Not only do we focus on gaining skills, we incorporate relationship building, personal growth and development in the context of a strong real world work ethic.
We have developed a provision offering a number of construction based vocational activities along with basic numeracy and literacy and some outdoor education provision. The centre is designed to give a bespoke package that enables each individual student to achieve.
This is a resource that schools and colleges can commission for individuals or groups of students as a weekly or block placement. Children’s homes wanting to prepare residents for independent living can also commission sessions during school holidays.
