CATCH has established links with Skills Development Scotland and West College Scotland, who work with us to provide internal assessments and qualifications within CATCH rather than externally at college. We understand that further educational settings can often be daunting for our young adults and this becomes a barrier for them to go on and train in an area of their interest which is why we prefer this path.

Training also can be offered part-time
