Has your child been permanently excluded from school? Back on Track is a not-for-profit alternative education provider, approved by Liverpool City Council, to offer 18 hours of creative, practical education that incorporates functional skills such as Maths and English and leads to qualifications that can support them as they move into further training or work. Our focus is on the young person so we also prioritise developing confidence, self-esteem and a belief in themselves and their abilities. We don’t offer exam coaching, but a programme that will re-engage young people in learning for learning’s sake.
Subjects will include basic life skills such as cookery, enterprise, emotional well-being alongside key numeracy and literacy skills. Students will receive Open Awards certificates which are recognised by colleges and employers and will count towards future learning o employment. We support our young people to apply for FE college, jobs or apprenticeships when they leave us at 16 – and secure additional support if they need it.
We also offer out-of-school activities for young people who are currently not in education, employment or training – building confidence and skills to help them take the next steps in life. Check out our Young People page to see the types of projects we run – and get in touch with us if you want more information on what’s coming up.
All our staff have enhanced DBS checks and have undergone safeguarding training.
