The Be Inspired programme is for any young person in year 6-11 who may need support in engagement with their current education. Young people are referred in by their school to be inducted in to the programme.
The programme aims to build resilience, confidence and self esteem in young people whilst exploring day to day struggles in education. Our youth workers aim to build a relationship before adapting our scheme of work to their interests to benefit engagement, topics such as friendship groups, mental health & wellbeing and self exploration are also used to assist in the reengagement back into mainstream education.
The overall aim of the programme is to give the young person the tools to be a successful, engaged and happy student back in their educational setting, we work closely with schools to ensure the best outcomes for both them and young person. We keep an element of flexibility within the programme so the reinduction back in to school can be staggered to suit both parties.
The programme currently runs in 2 ways, firstly we invite young people to attend a school day at Inspire Youth Zone from 10am-2pm up to 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and each day will cost £24 per day including access to laptops, lunch etc.
Secondly we are offering a youth worker support scheme as part of the programme which consists of schools booking our fully trained youth workers for a full school day to support the mental health and wellbeing of the students the cost of this is;
1 youth worker – £150 per day
2 youth workers – £250 per day
we are recruiting!
