About the employer: 

R.E.A.L. was established in 2008 to provide creative educational solutions for children and young people, between the ages of 5 and 19, who may be “lost to learning” or “hard to place”.

R.E.A.L. is not just about putting provision in place. We seek to put personalised and meaningful pathways in place that will re-focus learning for each young person and lead towards their development as a skilled and independent member of their community.
