Situation

The majority of young people excluded from mainstream education suffer from poor personal and social skills, little self-confidence and low aspirations. This leaves them unable to progress in education and employment and adversely impacts their ability to develop positive supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives.

Solution

Learn2Live delivers is a 2 half day per week personal and social development programme. One morning is on-site where the young people and staff team engage in team challenges, critical thinking exercises, literacy and numeracy based games, art, creative writing and cooking. The other morning is off-site with everyone being coached in a particular sport including tennis, boxing, football, squash and badminton. The project runs throughout the academic year.
