STN is well regarded for its friendly working environment. We accept all comers regardless of their circumstances and abilities. Many of our learners become true friends and return as peer mentors, counsellors or volunteers, thereby reinforcing our positive presence in the local community.

STN aims to educate, empower, inspire and train the needier individuals in our community; helping people to overcome barriers and improve their lives. Sharing this journey is a joyful and rewarding experience for all involved.

We have a strong track record in dealing with vulnerable and marginalised people who face multiple barriers, often worsened by long term unemployment.

We get to know our clients well enough to tailor our programs to their needs and aspirations. By building rapport we develop strong working relationships based on friendship, trust and mutual respect.

 

Skills & Training Network champions equality. We celebrate local cultural diversity and promote a positive team working spirit. We alternatively offer every learner a peer mentor partner to monitor their progress and share the learning experience.
