In July 2012 Nescot's successful plans for a new build received the go ahead to proceed from the Education Funding Agency and Surrey County Council. The plans included the relocation of Nescot's PfLW (Preparation for Life and Work) department into a brand new purpose built building, enabling them to widen the range of courses offered to learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, and insuring that there were more opportunities for work experience.
The new building will include the creation of supported small social enterprises in the form of retail facilities, including a Cafe and Shop selling jams, chutney, craft, garden plants and seasonal decorations. The aim is to empower students to make effective transitions from school to college and onwards into employment or further education. It will also provide a social area for students with learning needs such as autism, aspergers or speech and language disorders. This webpage is made by students and staff in the Nescot PfLW department to document the development of our new centre.
