Pre 16 Learning
Orchard, Personalised Learning and Nurture Centre
This provision has been in place since September 2006, supporting young people who are at risk or permanently excluded from mainstream education.
Success has been evident in our local area, NE Lincolnshire, engaging young people who have multiple barriers when accessing education.
Young people access learning with “Orchard, Personalised Learning and Nurture Centre” and have individualised learning programmes to combat barriers to learning and inspire young people to reach their potential.
Please follow the tab “Orchard” at the top of the website to read more about our delivery throughout our Pre 16 programmes.
Post 16 Learning
This programme has been a success for young people within Grimsby and Hull areas finding employment/ apprenticeships within the construction industry.
This programme has been designed to equip young people with employment and basic construction skills. Young people build a foundation of skills and then engage with local businesses to access work experience.
While engaging with work experience, learners will be on a 4 week job interview with the company to impress to hopefully gain employment in form of an apprenticeship.
DKM have been engaging with apprenticeships since April 2013 within the construction industry covering the following pathways;
Painting & Decorating
Multi-Trade Repair and Refurbishment
Occupational Work Supervision
DKM have developed a large employer database over the past few years across the UK and have increased overall succession, year on year.
