Lapwing Education - bespoke education for young people

Lapwing provides individual learning programmes and work experience opportunities for young people marginalised through ill-health, disability or circumstance. Some are at risk of exclusion from school or college, others are unable to access current educational provision. Some of the challenges our students face:

    • Autism
    • Behavioural and Emotional Difficulties
    • Aspergers/ASD
    • Learning disabilities
    • Mental illness
    • Debilitating / progressive illnesses
    • Pregnancy
    • Exclusion
    • Being ‘looked after’

Lapwing design and deliver inspiring, individual and appropriate plans for each of these young people offering the support, information and advice needed for them to take learning forward and reach their potential. By working with a growing number of partners in the public, private and third sectors there are no limits on the learning opportunities we can offer.
