The programme is led by qualified youth workers and will focus on personal development, good relations and citizenship. Young people
will take part in residential trips, complete an OCN Level 2 Award in Personal Success and
Wellbeing (6 credits) alongside gaining volunteering hours and support from one to one mentoring.
The young people will be enrolled as students at the College and the idea is that this would be
an entry point for young people who might not be ready for Further or Higher Education yet or
maybe need some direction in what they want to do in life.
Futures will cater for young people who have or may be close to disengaging from mainstream
education and those who might have dropped out of school/college from the age of 16. We
are also targeting young people who might be on waiting lists for courses to give them something
productive to do with their time and would offer a progression route onto college courses.
Futures wants to level the playing field for young people who have not had a fair deal. Futures has the skills and facilities to cater for young people
from various backgrounds, abilities and experiences including refugee and asylum seekers. Please contact us to discuss particular support required.
Benefits - To support young people while they attend the programme, we provide travel, child care and lunch costs as well as an incentive payment of £8 per day of
attendance. This does not affect their benefits.
