Activate Learning has launched a new programme, running across Banbury and Oxford, aimed at 14-16 year olds who are currently not in formal education.
The EHE (Electivity Home Educated) programme will run from September 2018. The programme, across a number of vocational areas, aims to engage young people for whom traditional education is not working for a number of reasons.
Learners who attend the EHE programme will be offered a learning package that will consist of:
- Vocational programme
- Personal and social development
- Tutorial support
- Attributes - helping develop skills around employability, confidence and preparing them to become more independent.
At the launch event in Oxford, which was well attended by young people, parents and carers, Faculty Manager Hannah Thomas highlighted the importance of education in helping engage young people. She said that they were the future workforce, and that she felt confident that many would be able to progress on to a number of programmes.
Attendees were given the opportunity to listen to a presentation about the programme, talk to members of staff about their circumstances, and take part in a campus tour, before submitting an expression of interest.
