What are the programmes like?
We try not to do a lot of talking, although we do have to do some!
We prefer to spend as much time as possible with you thinking, taking part in activities, watching video clips, listening to music and having fun. It doesn’t sound like learning does it, but we can assure you that it is…just done a little differently!
Why should my school
become involved?
Okay, here’s 5 good reasons:
  1. Because over 94% of our students say they benefit from our programmes (and have fun!)
  2. Because where possible we try give the workshop for free or at a reduced rate that your school can afford.
  3. We try to include some interesting/different physical activities at the end of the day like climbing, football, water sports etc…so if you haven’t had enough fun learning, we’ll make sure you have a fantastic day.
  4. At a young age you have to make some big decisions about your future, so we believe in giving you the time and tools to help you make some of those big decisions.
  5. By working with businesses, we hope that we can help you to find out more about what options you have when you finish your GCSEs, and what different jobs are available at different companies.
It would be easy for us to tell you lots of great things about us, but instead let’s have a look at what the previous students have had to say!
So, we’ve told you about us, but we’d love to hear from you. If you’ve got some ideas, here’s how to tell us more: Click here to go to our contact page
As a young person, we’d like you to think our materials and the work we do with schools are funky, rad, awesome…and all those other ‘in’ words. So, to help you to find out more about us, here’s some info that might be useful.
What kind of programmes can my
