GAIN THE SKILLS YOU NEED WITH SOFEA

Do you want to gain...

  • Qualifications and skills that will help prepare you for that all important first job
  • Real work experience, while making a difference to the lives of vulnerable families in South Oxfordshire.

City of Oxford College and Reading College are working in partnership with social enterprise SOFEA (South Oxfordshire Food and Education Alliance).

How can we help you

SOFEA can help you gain experience, qualifications and skills if you are:

  • Aged 16-18 (up to 24 for young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan or a Statement of Special Educational Needs).
  • Looking for a more practical, hands-on alternative to school
  • Interested in gaining experience which may help you get into your first job
  • Able to commit to attend your chosen programme three days per week, for between six months and one year
  • Our programmes count as full-time education, so parents can still claim child benefit and tax credits if needed. Transport is paid for and bursaries may be available.
