Claire Cook

founder & Proprietor

“I believe that alternative education should be just that…‘alternative to, not less than’ mainstream education. I am fiercely passionate about providing a service that works in close partnership with schools to prevent permanent exclusions and placement breakdown, and since opening the doors in 2012, with our unique approach, we have consistently produced excellent outcomes, both academic and pastoral for our students; transforming young lives and building resilient communities in the process.

In May 2018, I am proud to say we became a registered independent school, further galvanising our commitment to providing credible alternative education. We specialise in referrals for students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health barriers, as well as unique support for Children who are Looked After and those with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP’s).

The clue is in our title, ‘Employability Solutions’; we find creative, innovative and common-sense approaches to build the employability of every young person, such that they can go off into the world of work and be successful.

I would urge anyone wanting more information, to come along for an informal chat and a look around our centres. We have an open-door policy and the kettle is always on!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our students and their families to Employability Solutions and wish them every success in their education.”
