SOFA is a Social Enterprise, established in 2009 and based at Cedars Academy, Gateshead.

Our executive comprises representatives from education, training and business. We provide opportunities for learners aged 16+ with learning difficulties and/or a disability to progress through vocational applications, offering valuable work placements, training pathways, advocacy arrangements, support and social networks. SOFA is committed to providing an environment where individual development is nurtured and in which fulfilling training and careers may be pursued.

SOFA aims to:

provide learners with more opportunities for work experience placements and programmes that develop their work related skills, and to

develop routes and support mechanisms to enable learners with learning difficulties or a disability to progress to supported employment and vocational programmes.
