Good Days 2 (GD2)

Our program delivers motivational and educational sessions to help identified young people to get back in to an educational provision, on a part time timetable working alongside schools and colleges.

This provision is for secondary Students who are;

  • At risk of exclusion
  • Have been permanently excluded
  • In need of support for access to education
  • Having difficult in fitting into the school environment

Work is developed to be delivered either on a one-one basis or via group work.  It is an exciting and innovative programme designed around students needs.

How do we do this?

A team of workers from Positive about Young People will design educational motivational packages for each young person targeting individual needs creating a suitable programme.

We provide students with a wide range of additional educational activities to complement statutory education.  Organised sessions also identify issues with behaviour and anger management and allow young people to develop skills and strategies to control themselves in situations where they may previously have struggled. Individualised educational and support packages are designed for each young person by our staff – targeting identified needs.

Students are referred to the programme with a view to encouraging them to participate in life-enriching opportunities and projects to develop skills that will equip them for their future.

Whilst working alongside schools and colleges, students will receive half termly educational reviews to ensure the work provided reflects the changing needs of the student.
