Recently I have been working with the young people from the Home & Continuing Education service. These young people are home schooled or access the service.
The Home & Continuing Education service is a local authority service for young people who are unable to access their school due to with medical needs/ mental health. The service offers a wide range of subjects at different levels including maths, english, science, art, animal care, i-media to name some.
Every Thursday afternoon they have an enrichment afternoon, this involves an activity that will benefit the young people and is always fun. Over the past few weeks, I have been going along and joining in to create positive relationships so I can support and engage with these fab young people. They are a mix of ages and abilities.
I have been working with the older children mostly to build trust and enable us to work together. We want to ensure these young people are supported with the next important transition and make it both smooth and manageable.
A lot of the young people have SEND and school isn’t the right place for them so this is a service that educates the young people but differently and in ways that the young person wants to learn and have still have fun.
I am going to be regularly attending their enrichment sessions to help and support the young people.
We went to Wheels for all in Birkenhead Park for the last enrichment activity before half term. It was amazing and such a fun experience. It gave me a chance to meet the young people outside of the service building. Here‘s a few photos from our time at Birkenhead Park.
Here’s a link to more information about the service.
