Our unique programes are delivered to groups of up to 8 young people by two specialist teachers. We are commissioned by Local Education Authorities or by individual schools or Academy Chains.
Building Foundations Programme
(for 11-16 year olds at risk of or excluded from school)
This programme will equip young participants with the personal social and emotional skills and coping mechanisms required to improve their capacity and readiness to learn and engage in education in its broadest sense. It will bring them nearer to ‘work readiness’ by exposing them to a variety of experiences with employers which are carefully designed and managed to maximise learning.
The programme can be delivered to a maximum group size of 10 by negotiation, away from school within a variety of diverse and stimulating environments.
Functional maths and English will be embedded and can also be accredited through NCFE by negotiation.
Moving on Programme
(vulnerable 16+ students and young people between 16-25 who are not in education, employment or training)
This programme follows the underlying principles of the Building Foundations Programme and aims to provide a follow-on wrap around of continuing support and guidance in order to promote successful transition into meaningful training for employment for those young people who are still highly vulnerable to becoming long term NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training). Experience shows that unless there is some longer term pastoral support post school, many will succumb to the common barriers which can prevent them making good progress.
The programme is delivered to a group size of 8 within a variety of diverse and stimulating environments. This is delivered over a 6 week period and supports:
- CV Development
- Skills Based CV writing
- Job applications
- Mock Interviews with industry representatives
- Interview and assessment day preparation
- Support in beginning new employment.
We also offer short and longer term training opportunities with our specialist team for undergraduates and PGCE students as well as students of Social Work. Please apply via your university or by sending your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
