Kelly Wise

Peterborough GAPS Centre Manager

I am Kelly Wise, I started with TCHC in October 2022 and worked on two different programmes before becoming Centre Manager at GAPS Peterborough in March 2023.  I have worked with young people across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire for over 25 years in a variety of different settings; schools, youth groups, community outreach, children’s homes and more.  I feel blessed to have met, supported and encouraged so many local young people to develop their skills and confidence and achieve success.

GAPS Peterborough is a happy, welcoming centre; our ethos is “nurture, growth and development” and our mantra is “be kind – to yourself and others”.  We ensure all learners are seen, heard, valued and have a sense of belonging.

The team deliver engaging, informative and relevant sessions which give learners the best chance of completing and achieving their qualifications which are designed to meet the differing and individual needs of the learners. Throughout the learners’ journey there are many opportunities to enhance their skills and experiences “beyond the classroom”, to develop their self-confidence, belief and worth and encourage them towards independent living.


TCHC works effectively to include learners with complex needs. We have the facilities and expertise to work with learners with special educational needs in the areas of:

  • Sensory and physical needs
  • Cognition and learning
  • Communication and interaction
  • Social and emotional difficulties
  • Mental health
  • Learners with complex communication difficulties (ASD)

Our provision proudly consists of a personalised and flexible programme of support, which is updated regularly, to give our learners a positive learning experience.

All courses will be accredited through National Awarding Bodies.
