For children who have had limited success in formal education, or who have struggled in specialist settings, Five Rivers’ Outreach offers a proven alternative.
We have specialist teachers and support workers who help to develop the whole child. Our holistic approach boosts confidence, self-esteem and helps young people to develop the skills to be a successful learner. Academic testing helps us to target work that fills in the gaps so that young people can make successful transitions back to school or on to college placements or apprenticeships.
The young people work in community settings with two or more staff (depending on the identified needs). Their educational programme varies according to the aims of the work discussed with the commissioning caseworker. We create bespoke packages, using the skills of both Five Rivers’ trained staff and approved specialist providers.
Each child can have access to both academic subjects (English, Maths, Science ICT, Humanities, PSHE, PE) and kinaesthetic learning and practical activities such as horticulture, mechanics, art and music, as well as therapeutic input such as equine therapy.
Young people are able to accredit their achievements through AQA Unit Awards, ASDAN Awards and Entry Level Examinations.
