Landbased skills that are delivered offsite from the Dorset Alternative Provision can lead to a City & Guilds Qualification.
We are exploring work experience for our students and we hope to offer this by the end of this academic year for Year 10 and Year 11 students.
Some students have attended the week long SPARC (Safer People and Responsible Communities) course in February. This project is run by Dorset Fire and Rescue Service for young people between the ages of 13-18. The young people benefit by learning fire fighting skills, team building skills, build on their self esteem and learn fire and safety awareness as well as raising awareness of career opportunities.
Equilibrium work with young people one to one in a wide variety of ways. Have a look at their website for a lot more info!
We use REACH youth workers to offer support and interventions to any students that we think will benefit from an alternative provision or project work. The students who take part are offsite for one day a week usually.
Working on joint and individual projects within a flexible outdoor setting allows students the space and safety to develop personal and social skills such as team building, self regulation and reliance, as well as learning to enjoy the outdoors, cook on a camp fire, build shelters and be more active.
Students are offered the opportunity to take part in sailing lessons. These lessons help to develop a range of skills, such as co-ordination, working with others, as well as building confidence, gaining new skills and having fun!
