Skillway - simply vocational workshops
Registered Charity Number 277631 Established 1998
Skillway is a small charity based in Godalming and is one half of the W C T Charity. The workshops are housed in the disused chapel buildings of Nightingale Cemetery.
The aim of Skillway is to motivate and instil confidence in disadvantaged or disengaged young people by teaching them practical workshop skills. The students we work with are generally finding it hard to accept and work within the very academic environment of school, or are home-tutored.
The students enjoy our 'hands on ' learning delivered by volunteer skilled craftsmen, with long standing experience of their specialist trades. The students are treated as young adults in an environment unlike school and are prepared for the world of work, and/or further training in specialist Colleges, or Apprenticeships

Our approach is to be as flexible as we can in what we offer, so that the young people are given the individual help that they need.
