This week saw several young people start a 3 week induction programme at our West Sussex centre.
The programme provides learners with the chance to get to know each other, team build and even achieve a qualification before they start main classes!
Joining something new can be scary and the aim of the induction is to help young people increase their confidence and settle in before their learning begins.
Week one saw the learners ‘get to know each other’ with some ice breaker activities and also agreeing the expectations of being in the group. A common theme amongst the group was the word ‘trustworthy’, which we will be looking to see over the next couple of weeks.
Learners also had the opportunity to reflect on their reasons for joining the programme using a road map. The map highlights where the young people currently are on their journey and where they want to be by the end of road, highlighting any obstacles they might face on the way. These will be used as a tool for target setting on each of the young person’s individual learning plans.
Week two will see the learners team building! Watch this space!
