    Many young people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autism are not given the opportunity to reach their full potential.

    The Co-operative (ad)Venture Project involves a series of engaging activities which take place twice a week, equipping young people with learning difficulties, disabilities and autism aged 16 - 30 with the skills needed to assist with the smooth transition from compulsory education to further education, training and employment. The Project is returning to Fife. Co-operative College are partnering with ENABLE Scotland. View the highlights from the Aug – Dec cohort on Fife Today.
     

    What's involved
