About our Education Services

 

At KEYFORT, our education services provide a comprehensive range of specialist support, removing barriers to learning for a diverse range of students, in both Higher and Further Education. This can range from ad hoc mentoring or note taking support to larger, 24/7, integrated personal care and academic support packages.

We are able to demonstrate a flexible and adaptable approach to working in partnership with each student to promote their independence and autonomy.  As a result, students can find the KEY to breaking down their educational barriers, unlocking their potential and fulfilling their goals.

At KEYFORT we believe supporting our staff is the KEY to unlocking their potential to provide a high quality of support to all of our students. Our Team has experience working with individuals with specific conditions and/or disabilities, and come from a broad variety of backgrounds. At KEYFORT, we equip our support workers with a wide range of skills, through extensive induction and awareness training ensuring that they have the knowledge and skills to work in partnership with our students. Our support workers continue to receive support throughout their journey at KEYFORT, where they have access to CPD, shadowing, supervisions and workshops to further enhance and develop their skills.

Working in partnership is essential to the support we provide. We take pride in ensuring we meet the needs of our commissioners. We have built great relationships with the disability advisors, social workers and solicitors we work with and that they can rely on contacting us if additional support is required.
