Progress 8 Qualifications

All young people attending Melton Learning Hub (MLH) work towards gaining recognised accreditation as well as having their individual needs met via The Hub’s additional focus on personal and social development. Partnership work has been a key factor in The Hub’s current success and this multi-agency approach helps to ensure a brighter future for young people. From September 2016 The Hub will offer a Progress 8 programme. This will run two days a week and will offer vocational qualifications that support the requirements placed on schools.
