Schools Programme

Horizon Training aims to work with schools to provide alternative provision courses for young people aged 14-16, this can help those dis-engaging from mainstream curriculum to gain vocational skills, if the schools decide then this alternative provision can lead towards accredited qualifications.

This is aimed at students who are disadvantaged or disengaged from education to spend up to four days a week doing practical sessions in either catering or construction. This can encourage students to help re-engage in education while building up their qualifications, work and life skills. Horizon Training works closely with all schools to ensure there is a clear approach in how best to tailor provision for every single young person.

Each young person is supported by an assigned Coordinator to ensure successful participation in the scheme. If requested by the schools we will send reports out for parents evenings. We correspond with schools daily on attendance and then additionally if there have been any behaviour or praise needed to be reported.

We may be able to offer specific help for young people with physical disabilities, learning difficulties or mental health problems, this would need to be assessed against the needs of individual requirements.
