Assisted Learning

TEENS+ is a unique service which provides further education, life and social skills, offer work placement support, transition to ownership of tenancies and lifelong learning, to young people who, due to their needs, would ordinarily be excluded from accessing any form of further education once they have left school. Our main philosophy is everyone is entitled to lifelong learning regardless of challenges.

Who we are

Jamie Thumbs

TEENS+ is an Edinburgh-based, full time, transitional education project for young adults aged 17 to their 20s, with complex and severe communication needs, such as autism, who have left school and are entering adulthood. We have over 30 fully trained staff members and one of the leading facilities in our field. We’re split over two centres in Edinburgh, Ravenscroft and The Inch which tailor to different groups.

The project runs for 4.5 days a week, Monday to Thursday, 9 am to 4.45 pm and on a Friday 9 am to 1 pm. You can view our current timetable here.
