Training and events

At Wellie Life, we seek to make our courses as inclusive as possible by adapting to the needs of each individual learner

Our courses are suitable for any learner, including those without a formal education background, whether you left school early, without GCSEs, or just don’t get on with a formal teaching environment.

If you have an SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) diagnosis, or other additional educational requirements, we have support options available including BSL interpreted courses and scribe provision.

Depending on the course and the learner, training can be delivered in a classroom or in an outdoor event-style setting. Please contact us for more information about how we can tailor our courses to fit you.
