About us

Roots and Shoots provides vocational training for young people from the inner city, mainly from the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark. We aim to give them the skills and self-confidence that will equip them for work. Alongside this training we involve local schools and the wider community by establishing our site as an important green space for urban biodiversity. Progression pathways is the umbrella concept. Includes 3 distinct components - Vocational knowledge, skills and understanding. - Functional skills (maths, english, IT). - Personal and social development.
