Essential Life Skills Funding
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding from The Essential Life Skills Fund.
The Essential Life Skills Fund is part of the North Yorkshire Coast Opportunity Area. This is one of 12 areas identified nationally by the Department for Education to receive additional support to improve social mobility and to help children and young people get the best start in life. The Essential Life Skills Fund is providing improved access to extra-curricular activities, helping children and young people to explore the opportunities open to them and develop new skills.
Over the next academic year we will be working with children with specific learning difficulties at 2 schools in Scarborough. The young people involved will work together to respond to three professional design briefs set over the year, guided by our qualified tutors from Creative Briefs.
Throughout each brief we will working with lead staff at the schools so we can share creative approaches to teaching which can be developed over the year and incorporated in future lesson planning and teaching.
