Who we are:
ELATT is a mixed community, award-winning, learning community and training provider made up of a dynamic group of people.
Graded Outstanding by Ofsted, we are here to help our students realise their potential in all aspects of learning, life, work and wellbeing.
Each year we enrol up to 80 young people aged 16-25 who have special education needs or are looked after children
Our progression and achievement rates are 50 percent higher than the national average.
Students successfully progress into further and higher education and training.
What we do:
Our goal is to provide a supportive, encouraging and nurturing environment for young people who have complex and inter-related:
• communication and social interaction,
• cognition and learning, and/or
• social, emotional and mental health difficulties
Our Learning Programmes
“The pace of learning is particularly good and learners are successfully encouraged to work at higher levels than their previous qualifications and experience would suggest.”

All our students receive a personalised timetable tailored to their individual needs.
As a specialist in digital technology training for over 30 years, we offer training in:
• Web Design and Development (including Coding)
• Computer Engineering
• Business Administration (including Microsoft Office)
• Digital Media Production
• English and maths GCSEs (compulsory if existing grades are below C or 4)
Where appropriate we teach Functional Skills as stepping stones to GCSEs to ensure that students feel their English and Maths studies are supported without the pressure of GCSE exams.
Small classes of an average of 10 students are a vital element of our provision and allow us to deliver more direct support to each young person.
We develop and maintain good relationships and high levels of individual learning with our students.
“Excellent personal support from teachers, specialist staff and fellow learners all help to increase learners’ self-esteem, as well as instilling in them a desire to succeed in training and improve their personal circumstances”.
