Admissions Arrangements

Every year we train up to 45 young people from London and help them to prepare for the world of work with vocational training courses, holistic support and enrichment opportunities. Each student who attends Roots and Shoots experiences a unique programme tailored to their individual learning needs, personal and professional goals.

Our full time courses are aimed at young people between the ages of 16 and 24 years of age with an Education, Health and Care Plan and who are a resident of any one of London’s 32 boroughs. The vocational education Roots and Shoots provides is directly funded by the Department of Education and Local Authorities, and so Local Authorities are directly involved in the admissions process.
