Informal learning workshops
We have highly trained youth workers able to deliver focussed workshops. These have been proven to be a solid base from which to develop a "social education" model of youth engagement that includes:
- Alcohol awareness and saftey
- Drugs awareness and saftey
- Healthy relationships
- Sexual Health
- Physical wellbeing
- Emotional wellbeing
- Budgeting and independant living
- Pro-social skill building;eg conflict resolution, problem solving and team work skills
- Incredible Years Programme
- Health and Fitness
- Arts and Crafts
- Food/Diet Management
All our provision for young people has the ability to be flexible enough to be effective in both centre based and off site situations. our real strength however. lies in our ability to deliver and resource excellent youth work within the spaces affoded across our three main sites:
- Hamoaze House
- Seymour House
- Our purpose built cabin and play park
Here we can concrete and embed the young people’s learning through a very relaxed and informal approach to the development of pro-social skills and learning. For example, issues arising out on positive activities can be unpacked and explored through discussion and debate in the relaxed environment we offer. Excellent engagement by skilled workers can mean that interventions made whilst off site can be opened up, unpacked and explored in safety and at a pace suitable to this often complex work. Or equally, learning begun in a workshop setting can be returned to again and again as workers relax with young people playing pool or table tennis or in conversational engagement. This often overlooked but vital component of the work forms the central plank upon which all our work is delivered.
During their time with us at Seymour, our young people will be helped to develop and express their ideas surrounding their future life/education/career choices. We will be actively supporting them to discover and create opportunities for themselves by engaging with them in;
- Developing individual training needs and personalised future path planning leading to;
- Taster days at college.
- Taster days in work based environments.
- Future possible development of a volunteer coordinator that can act as a filter for young people looking to expand their horizons and work experiences.
