Janet wants students who come through the organisation to have a good experience, which will give them life-changing opportunities. Almond Vocational Link has had a prestigious Partnership project approved under the Lifelong Learning Programme in 2009 and also gained many partners under the LLP in Mobility both for students in Initial Vocational Training as well as for People in the Labour market.
