Our history

Founded in February 2016, grounded in learning.

In2Skills was sparked by an ambition to improve people’s lives.

Experience gained in Welfare to Work gave us the passion, the skills and the knowledge to change people’s lives, alongside a desire to do things a bit differently.

Our mission is to offer flexibility to individual learners – to develop a program that adapts to fit them.

Pastoral support is at the heart of everything we do—for learners and also for staff. Although the awareness of mental health problems has increased, services and provision have rarely caught up. Many of our staff have lived experience of finding strategies to protect their mental health—strategies that we can share with our learners. Most importantly, we can be an advocate for our learners.

Being an advocate for learners means providing empathy, building confidence, and facilitating change. It means that we can offer blended learning over 6 weeks or up to 12 months, depending on what the learner needs. Most important of all, we support the learner into taking ownership of their own learning journey.

 

Our Ethos: to develop well rounded, confident, and independent individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential.

We will deliver this by providing a welcome, safe, flexible, and supportive learning environment in which everyone is equal, and all achievements are celebrated for a brighter future.
