LIFE Education Provision provides a full- time Education Programme for Students in years 12 to 14. Based at Frimley Green Youth Centre, LIFE provides students with the time they need to overcome barriers and supports them with the progression into employment, education and training.
Funding from the HSYA supported the summer project for vulnerable students who required additional support transitioning to a positive destination, due to the Covid crisis. All of the students have social and emotional difficulties and some of the students are known to the police for anti-social behaviour.
LIFE operated in its own individual “Education bubble”, enabling the summer project to open within the DFES guidelines. Due to the differing needs of the cohort, the students were offered a varied timetable within the constraints linked to Covid 19. The programme included activities in the local community, sports and fitness, arts and crafts, cooking and well-being activities to increase resilience and manage stress, with a particular emphasis on mixing with other people after the lockdown.
Jo Heath, manager of LIFE stated “The summer transition project was really beneficial to the students. For some of the students, they had not been out of the house for long periods of time”.
