CMAS provides the following services:

Alternative Education Provision

We provide alternative education for young people who, for a variety of reasons cannot attend education fill time. We are commissioned by individual schools, LEA’s and Virtual Schools to meet needs for individual and groups of young people.

CMAS School

CMAS provide Independent Schools in Devon and Gloucestershire to help meet the unmet needs of young people who struggle with mainstream schooling. We are working with leaders in their field around the Psychological needs of young people, inclusive curriculum and recording/measuring tools to make this an exciting addition to the educational landscape in the South West.

One to one mentoring for young people with additional needs

This service includes a holistic assessment of the young person’s needs; outcome-setting; and a series of one-to-one mentoring sessions in a mutually convenient location to work together to try and achieve these outcomes.  We employ a wide range of professionals to help ensure a good match for mentor to mentee.

Youth Club and Youth Service provision

CMAS provides over 20 youth clubs a week in rural and urban areas across Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. We are a creative and value for money solution to bodies wishing to run youth work in their area. We also run specialist groups (LGBTQ+ and a group for young people with Downs Syndrome) and can advise on the best way to form, run and manage youth work settings.

International Youth Work

As part of the above we also are involved in partnerships with youth organisations from Pau (France), Gottingen (Germany), Torun (Poland) and Tortona (Italy). We regularly visit and/or host groups of young people as part of this exciting work.
