ENGAGE is determined to provide a dynamic and supportive learning environment to meet the social and educational needs of young people aged 14-16 years old.
Our aim is to empower our young people so that they may progress their social and educational development, and gain the personal resources, attitudes and abilities that will inform their life choices and expand their life options. All students are provided with a flexible and innovative education programme tailored to meet their individual learning needs and styles. These programmes will support students to gain formal qualifications through a non-formal learning approach.
We want students to enjoy and achieve through education and this proven ethos helps broaden our students social skills, helps develop practical and academic abilities, promotes confidence to go into Further or Higher Education and in the longer term promotes job prospects and ultimately greater social inclusion.
ENGAGE allows students to improve academic and vocational skills in ‘real work’ settings in order to demonstrate actual employability in a very difficult employment climate.
