Welcome to Out of Our Woods
Let me take a few minutes of your time to explain who we are and what we do.
Works4U is a specialist post 16 college. Our students are in the age range 16 to 24 and have a wide range of significant barriers to main stream education and social inclusion including for example, autism, learning disabilities, mental health needs and other barriers that can hinder their learning.
We offer young people a range of vocational training opportunities, life skills and preparation for independent living as well as personal development and social interaction skills.
Through our “Craft and Design” department, we provide the opportunity for our students to run, with the help of qualified staff, their own business enterprise called “Out of Our Woods”.
The products you will see in our catalogue are designed and manufactured by our students.
Our students are involved in all aspects of the business including product design, materials purchase, marketing,sales, manufacturing and distribution. The students also have a say in the spending of the profits generated.
We hope you find something to your taste in our catalogue and we thank you for supporting our students enterprise.
