What support is available?
Planet Diversity is unique.

A proven track record over three decades has resulted in a 100% success rate in all of our functional skills courses, regardless, or perhaps because of learners’ needs, whether that is educationally, socially or health-wise; including those with disabilities. Our tutors have decades of assessment and support experience, as well as being trained counsellors.
