Young Learners at Risk

Learners at risk of leaving early with little or no qualifications often present distress signs long before they leave. If these signs are detected in a timely manner, there are more chances of reengaging young people with relatively simple interventions. An early intervention allows for better results with fewer resources. All young people have an entitlement to be supported to achieve. For some of our young people school can be a difficult place to fit in. For these pupils it takes creative and collaborative thinking to implement proactive plans to support them to achieve qualifications and increase employability skills for work and life.
