Education and Alternative Curriculum
All young people will be encourage to attend their education provision whether a local high school, special school or college. Whilst awaiting an appropriate provision being identified education will be provided within the home.
New Horizons (NW) Ltd works in partnership with public and community sector youth organisations to deliver training, education and personal & social development outside of a formal classroom setting.
When young people leave school with few aspirations and fewer qualifications it doesn’t just impact on their life chances: it a huge problem for the school, community and society as a whole.
Our alternative curriculum programmes work with young people that are identified as being MOST AT RISK of leaving school with few qualifications and becoming NEET (Not in Education Employment or Training). By targeting young people before they drop out of the system we can raise their self esteem and help them to create positive outcomes for themselves.
We use the environment to help re engage young people with education – both within their school setting and outside the usual education system.
