What we do

GASP is widely recognised in Surrey as a provider of non-judgmental, caring and practical support. We deliver accredited courses in basic motor mechanics and practical engineering skills and contribute to students’ positive personal development. We do this by providing specialist, practical, hands-on learning within a focused, personalised and disciplined framework. This is either at our fully equipped custom-built workshop in Albury (near Guildford) or through our mobile unit, which enables us to bring the courses out to schools and
youth organisations across Surrey.

To find out more about our courses please visit our sessions page or prospectus.


“The GASP staff are brilliant and so knowledgeable and really empower and enable our learners. Students grow in confidence, learning and developing new skills such as problem solving, creative thinking, trial and error, all in a safe and nurturing environment as well as learning to work together.”

“I wanted to say just how brilliant the tutors from GASP have been. The students have really enjoyed it and learnt lots. It has also helped to get some of our low attenders back into school so thank you for that as well. I hope we can work with you again next academic year.”

"The [GASP] course gives the young people an opportunity to learn skills that they wouldn’t be able to access through the school curriculum, which could in turn lead on to vocational training. With the course being hands on, it gives our young people a break from academic learning which they can struggle with. The course also has a positive impact on those students that have low attendance marks as we see that they make the effort to attend school more."
Three Rivers School

“There are limited opportunities for hands on experiences such as GASP within curriculum time. The one to one small group support that GASP provide to the students is invaluable. Just time to talk to another adult and to work on a one to one level is missing in so many of these children’s lives as they do not have parents or grandparents close to them that they spend time with, like we did when we were younger. These enriching experiences are so important for children to learn how to interact with adults, that are not their parents or teachers, GASP opens these doors and provides these unique opportunities for students.”
Woking High School
December 2022
“The GASP Course enables our students to work independently from school staff and to explore other aspects of the curriculum. They were able to understand how developing good interpersonal skills can help them thrive as they needed to engage with new and other adults. They were able to gain confidence in learning about and working with new equipment and learnt new skills. Many have discovered or had confirmed an interest in practical work and/or mechanics.”
Rodborough School

“My son is now off to University and there's no doubt that the time he spent with the GASP volunteers and other students helped confirm his desire to study Automotive Engineering and I'm sure that his experience and involvement with Greenpower made him a much more interesting prospective candidate. I am grateful for all the time he was able to spend with the group - it also provided a very welcome change of scene from his academic studies and feel that his overall gain, far exceeded the cost.”
