Youth Provision

The 10-session Engage programme helps young people (in PRUs or at risk of exclusion from mainstream) develop 3 key skills: Staying Positive, Aiming High and Teamwork. Spiral believes that these are the 3 foundational skills they need to help them be able to interact positively with others, learn from and overcome challenges and see the point in effort.

These are the foundational skills they need to be able to reintegrate with education, make choices about their future and give them the platform to succeed.

Through interactive games, team-building activities and work based challenges, young people are guided through the programme by trusted and experienced youth workers. Each workshop focuses on key skills and step points (in line with Spiral's Theory of Change and Skills Builder steps). Each skill step is revisited and developed upon over the course of the programme, and clearly signposted to the young people.

Young people, whose skills are assessed by the teachers pre- and post-programme, learn these skills through doing, learning to reflect on, develop and communicate these skills using the language of Skills Builder.

By supporting them to do this, Spiral are helping young people develop the tools to act independently, to be able to interact with exciting professionals (who are not youth workers or teachers) and be the dynamic, driven and aspirational young people we know they can be.
