Foundation 92 is delighted to be working in partnership with Bury Council to launch a brand-new alternative provision education programme in the local community.
Young people aged 14+ will get the opportunity to partake in a specialised one-on-one learning experience, helping participants to lead healthy, independent and progressive lifestyles.
This individualised programme is specifically designed to work with people who are living with a life-limiting condition and/or a learning disability, with the personalised deliverance ensuring each young person’s educational experience is tailored to meet their needs.
The course aims to develop each participant’s interpersonal and general life skills, allowing young people to exit the programme leading positive and forward-thinking lifestyles with a nationally recognised qualification added to their skillset.
A total of 10 young people will be provided with the opportunity to engage in this programme each year, with Foundation 92 tailoring the course to meet each young person’s bespoke needs.
Head of Foundation 92 Tom Hutton said:
“We’re committed to providing inclusive sessions that are accessible to all. Through this programme, our specialist mentors will provide young people who may not have taken part in education provision with the chance to develop their skills and confidence within the wider community.”
This programme has already begun to have a positive impact on the local community with its first intake of participants, as parent Debi discussed.
“My son Ryan has been missing a peer group for a while now. Foundation 92 has given both sporting and coaching opportunities for my son to help develop his communication and interpersonal skills. His confidence is growing week on week through thanks to the staff that have been working with him!”
“I enjoy taking part in the sessions; the staff are kind, helpful and support me with my activities. I like the spacious rooms and sports pitches. I feel really included within the sessions and feel part of the team.”
