Short Full-time, 18 weeks
If you’ve got the determination to succeed and do something with your life, but don’t have formal qualifications, PEZ (Personal Empowerment Zone) can help you achieve your goals. PEZ is part of HIVE (Hope, Inspiration and Vision in Education), and gives you the chance to develop your essential skills, motivation and self-confidence in a way that interests you, so you’re ready to move on.
You’ll learn about a wide range of issues so you can take an active role in society. You’ll achieve a recognised Level 4 qualification in a highly supportive environment, to set you up for the next stage in your life.
