Alternative Provision

Kandu Arts deliver bespoke, accredited term-time alternative provision programs catering to young people in Wiltshire, Swindon, Somerset, and Berkshire who aren't consistently attending mainstream school. Referrals come from various sources including social services, youth offending teams, and educational institutions like mainstream schools, special schools, and colleges.


Our team provide personalised support packages based on individual needs, featuring a nurturing curriculum that integrates creative arts, life skills, and social development through customised activities, mentoring, study support, and accredited Arts Award qualifications. Our offerings extend beyond the classroom with access to ongoing educational opportunities and Kandu Projects during non-term periods.


In addition to our collaboration with Virtual Schools for Swindon, Wiltshire, Bath, and North East Somerset, we've partnered with carers, foster carers, and social services on diverse projects amplifying the voices of young people in care. One notable initiative, in partnership with Swindon Borough Council and Swindon Social Services, involved a video and drama project empowering looked after young people to share their experiences and insights with parents, foster carers, schools, media, and social services.


All Kandu practitioners and staff undergo thorough checks including enhanced DBS, safeguarding, and first aid training, along with continuous professional development tailored to our user groups.
