The Gateway Centre can help you reach your future
Not interested in school or college? Struggling to find a job? There are still lots of options to move your life forward
Not sure what you're doing next? Dropped out of school or college, or struggling to find work? The Gateway Centres in Abingdon and Witney can help.
The Gateway Centres offer supportive, flexible and progressive student-led programmes for 16-18 year olds who are not currently in education, employment or training. This may be due to missing school because of phobias, caring responsibilities, illness etc or not having found your direction since leaving school. Whatever the reason, the Gateway Centres can help you unlock your future.
This video was made by young people in the Gateway programme with support from staff and Film Oxford. Interested? Get in touch with Gateway now by contacting the college on 01993 703464 (Witney) or 01235 555 585 (Abingdon) or email email@example.com

If you're not sure what you want to do with your life, that's fine. If you have some ideas but you're not sure how to make them reality, that's fine, too. Staff at the Gateway can help you think through these issues and find your best way forward. They can also help if there are other problems in your life which make it harder to reach your future.
You can start and finish at any time. We will create a personalised learning programme that suits you, and gets you the support, development and qualifications you need - from entry level to level 3 (A level). You don't need to have any qualifications to get onto the Gateway Programme.

confidence and team building
volunteering and work experience
tutorial/personal & social development
trips, activities and crafts
Young people go on from the Gateway Programme to do all sorts of other things:
get a job – part time or full time
get a job with training
get an apprenticeship
get a place on a full time course
get supported employment
