About us

Ministry of Life Education are a community interest company that provide technical and vocational alternative educational opportunities for marginalised and disengaged young people aged 11-25.


We provide alternative educational environments, off campus, where young people can be supported in a more focused setting. The main aim of our organisation is to engage with young people who are not ready for mainstream education or the workplace and spend time with them working on vocational topics, which help them to progress to further education or employment. We achieve this aim through partnerships with Cardiff and Vale College and Cardiff Council.


We have a proven track record of working with young people who have left, or are at risk of leaving, school with little or no formal qualifications and supporting them through forms of vocational education. We specialise in multimedia modules that feature music and video. These modules have proved to be effective in engaging young people and sustaining their involvement to successful completion. We offer young people the opportunity to learn how to record their own music and create videos. Ministry of Life Education enable and encourage young people to use their time constructively and guide them towards more positive futures.

We recognise the contribution of our partners at CAVC and USW in being able to offer this exciting opportunity to our young people.
