"Young people benefit from the holistic approach to care for young people with
acquired brain injuries. As a result young people receive care and education to aid their rehabilitation."
Ofsted Care Inspection 2011
The Trust Centre is a unique education facility that offers bespoke programmes which integrate rehabilitation principles into an education curriculum for young people with acquired brain injury.
The Trust Centre offers young people a consistent teaching approach delivered in a functional, safe environment by an interdisciplinary team. This will enable the identification of the optimum teaching methods and environments to meet their often complex special educational needs, as well as strategies that will work for them and which can be applied in day to day life. The aim will be to enable them to meet their potential and to prevent the emergence of preventable secondary difficulties.
The Trust Centre is a specialist centre in its own right. However it also draws on the expertise of the staff team at Alderwasley Hall School, with whom it shares its site and which meets the needs of young people with speech and communication difficulties.
The young people at The Trust Centre could also benefit from access to the extensive facilities offered by the main school and its sister site at Callow Park, including the gym, swimming pool, music room and acres of grounds. Additionally, the Centre's location in the heart of the Peak District offers access to some of the country's most beautiful countryside and opportunities for outdoor activities.
The Centre is a joint venture between the SENAD Group, a respected provider of specialist education and care, and Trust-Ed, a charitable organisation which facilitates educational provision for young people with acquired brain injury. Trust-Ed provides ongoing consultancy and training for staff at the Centre, in addition to being equally represented along with SENAD on the Centre's management board. More information about the SENAD Group and Trust-Ed can be found at the back of this brochure.
