Skills for Life

With many years experience working with young people in crisis, we can provide a safe space to stabilise, challenge and build skills that impact on long term outcomes.

Our Skills for Life programme is dedicated to providing young people aged 7 upwards with an alternative education provision. We create bespoke, co-produced programmes built around individual need that utilise our 60+ acre site. We use a host of activities, which provide challenges and experiences that are key in building self-esteem, critical thinking and improving social and personal skills. Learning differently helps young people to develop their capacity to change and we have evidence that our approach demonstrates improved personal, social and educative outcomes. Our goal is to provide young people with support in developing resilience and effective coping strategies for dealing with the stress of life.

If young people:

  • null

    Are going through a period of difficult transition

  • null

    Need a boost in confidence

  • null

    Are experiencing difficulties in school

  • null

    Struggle with peer relationships

  • null

    Need support in developing coping strategies

  • null

    Would benefit from a more supportive environment

In order to record, evaluate and evidence the impact of the Skills for Life Programme our reporting tool allows assessment data to be compared, and progress measured over time. Our reporting system includes self-assessment by the service user and baseline, interim and post programme assessments by the referral agency.

We embed literacy and numeracy wherever we can and compile reports following every session so that if you need an update you can request one. We provide comprehensive end of term reports as standard detailing a young person’s progression. On request we can provide interim reports for TAC meetings, Reviews and updates for professionals.

We are passionate about learning and as well as working through our in house award scheme, parts of our programmes can be accredited.

We currently provide the following Accreditations:

AQA Accredited Unit Award Scheme Units 1-3 available in 7 disciplines. (21 awards)
BCU 1 Star and Paddle Power Levels 1 – 5. (Accredited by the British Canoe Union)
National Indoor Climbing Association Scheme (NICAS) Level 1-5 (Accredited by NICAS)

Head Out

A funded early intervention programme for those experiencing difficulties with their mental health. Mental health is crucial, and increasingly professional services are unable to cope with demand for services.

As with all our core programmes young people will be able to outline their own aims and goals for the programme, differences they would like to make and how they can go about achieving this with our support.

We offer 1:1 support alongside the programme and can attend meetings with parents, school and other professionals to support with positive change, re-engagement and access to other services.

We have limited availability for this programme, if you’re interested then please get in touch. We’d love to help if we can!
