REAL Education to launch new headquarters

REAL Education, which works with young people who have been marginalised by their complex special needs to develop skills leading them to becoming independent and employable adults, is to marked its 10th anniversary by moving to new headquarters in Mansfield.

The leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, Coun Kay Cutts, will launch the headquarters and vocational learning hub on Kings Mill Way, Mansfield, on Wednesday, 18th April

Guests include representatives from Mansfield 2020, councillors and business partners.

Learners from the centre will host the guests and give them a tour of the facilities, enabling them to see first-hand the vocational and curriculum classes given to students.

Richard Smith, director of REAL Education Ltd, said: “This is an exciting time for the company, reaching its tenth anniversary and moving our infrastructure into the heart of Nottinghamshire.

“We are taking the time to celebrate this expansion into Mansfield and the opening is another milestone in our continuing journey into improving the lives and educational opportunities for young people.

Coun Cutts added: “One of the measures of success in our Strategic Plan, Your Nottinghamshire, Your Future, is to improve educational outcomes for vulnerable young people, so I welcome the work REAL Education does to help young people whose complex needs or behaviours could otherwise limit their progress in mainstream settings.

“The right type of specialist support and training at a young age can dramatically increase a young person’s ability to live independently, find appropriate employment and enjoy a good quality of life.”

Since its formation in 2008, REAL Education has earned an excellent reputation for re-engaging children and young people whose additional needs and associated behaviours have been a barrier to learning in mainstream settings.
