Develop your Skills

Canterbury Oast Trust provides quality development opportunities for adults with learning disabilities in a variety of vocational subjects and settings across Kent and East Sussex.

The Trust owns and manages 5 social enterprises where people can develop their skills in a supportive real life setting – challenging prejudice whilst developing personal capacity.

We run development programmes and accredited training courses from all our enterprises. Additionally we have a college which delivers Core Skills courses in IT, Numeracy and Literacy.

We have been delivering development opportunities for over 20 years and our tutors have built up a wealth of experience. During this time we have supported the development of over 600 people.

The Trust promotes choice and independence after an individual needs assessment.

Everyone using our services has access to:

  • A varied programme of Life Skills
  • A creative and therapeutic environment
  • Accredited training opportunities
