A6 Education Centre

Based at the A6 Young People's Centre in Ardwick, the A6 Education Centre offers full time complementary education to young people whose personal and social circumstances are barriers to regular school attendance. Schools and other agencies refer these young people and student places are currently funded by local secondary schools.

The Centre aims to:

  • Offer educational provision with opportunities for accreditation to young people not attending mainstream school.
  • Identify, address and resolve issues, which result in individual non-attendance, such as behaviour problems, bullying, learning difficulties, caring responsibilities or poor relationships with teachers.
  • Develop individual routes back into school, training, further education or employment.

The core work at the centre lies in building trusting and respectful relationships with young people, offering a curriculum that will re-engage their interest in learning and working in partnership with schools to achieve reintegration to mainstream education. The programme covers GCSE English, Maths, Art & PE alongside AQA accredited Music, Interior Design and IT as well as outdoor and indoor leisure activities. Projects work closely with the Connexions service to develop individual routes to employment, training or further education.
