Referrals: Ripe Enterprise will take referrals for parents at any level even as low as pre entry level 3 and support them all the way to level 2 (which is equal to a GCSE accreditation)if the parent is willing to commit and attends on a weekly basis. The length of time this will take a parent all relies on their initial assessment outcome.
