This programme is for young people who, through emotional or behavioural learning barriers, are showing signs of - or have actually - disengaged from education, leaving them behind in their achievement or as a disruptive influence in the school.
Many of these young people have low self-esteem, little confidence, minimal social skills and quite often anger management issues and lack of emotional control.
We believe that every young person matters and that each has a unique value as a person - and that they can always change their educational trajectory.
By building professional relationships with individual students, providing 1:1 mentoring, striving to meet personal targets and delivering a varied curriculum, we hope that every child will learn to:
• Accept responsibility for maintaining a healthy body, mind and soul
• Be confident to make the right choice in a variety of environments
• Be open and optimistic about relationships and new challenges
• Value and respect themselves and others
• Feel empowered to take up the challenges of life
