Study Programme - Parents
At Martec

No two people have the same needs, so no two paths are the same. How can the Study Programme HELP?

Because Study Programme is all about the young person, they will need to tell us about what they like and what they want to do in life. Together we then work out how to get the young person to where they want to be. Training, placements and activities are based on the young person's needs and a way forward is agreed together.

How much does the course cost?

The programme doesn't cost anything!

EMA (Education Maintenance Allowance) has now been stopped, however, there is new financial help called bursaries which may be  available if your son / daughter is starting or carrying on with a course with Martec this year.
