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.
