It’s been another busy year in the YWT section so spare some time to read up on some of the work that’s been happening.

UPS Roadcode

Over the last 10 months we have managed to deliver this project in schools and colleges below:

  • Five Acres College
  • Hartpury College
  • Maiden Hill
  • KLB
  • St George Alternative Provision (Cheltenham)

The project was also delivered to 3 Prince’s Trust team and the HITZ Project.

In total the project reached 191 young people in the county.

ABC Level 2 Award in Youth Work

22 applications were received for the course and though there was a delay in starting the course it finally commenced in September 2015 with 12 learners, 10 of whom are working towards graduating with a national qualification in youth work in March 2016.

Doorstep Club

Both our projects are based in Northway and Priors Park. The project successfully passed a recent Compliance and Monitoring visit and both our sport coaches are working hard to meet our targets and encourage young people to look after their health and well-being whilst participating in their Doorstep Club.

School Programmes

This is an exciting area of work that has received some enquires from a few schools. This year a 7 week programme was delivered in Millbank School to great success. I’m hoping to work with at least 6 schools during 2016.

Skills for Adolescence

After almost 2 years of delivering the programme in 3 schools across the county the project closed in March 2015 and over 70 young people were given important life skills in that period as well as being given the opportunity to talk about issues that are important to them in a safe environment. I would like to thank Rednock School, Sir William Romney and Tewkesbury School for working with Young Gloucestershire on this project.
