sccSouthampton City Council

FLE is contracted by Southampton City Council to deliver adult and community learning programs and we have been doing this for the past 5 year. To gain a SCC contract you must ensure you comply with the councils rigid health and safety criteria and have teaching observations carried out by the SCC observation team. Both Graham and Tom have scored a Grade 1 for their teaching standards. We do not just work in Southampton though – we work with groups right across Hampshire.
