Keys - Tees Valley

Keys Logo

Keys is listed under Broadwood Educational Services Ltd within the approved list of Alternative Education providers with Middlesbrough Council.

Tees Valley College is a specialist alternative education provision supporting and giving motivation to young people in the Tees Valley Area.

The students that are referred to us often have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties; they need a smaller, more structured educational placement in order to develop. Young people who are referred to us have the opportunity to gain qualifications on a variety of vocational programmes as well as qualifications in Mathamatics, English, ICT and other subjects. We support our students by working with them in overcoming their individual barriers towards learning, progressing them on towards apprenticeships, supporting them back into full time education or attending local colleges or training providers.

The provision is for boys or girls aged between 11 and 18 who have been excluded or at risk of exclusion from mainstream education.
