I understand that you work with 16+ year olds in Bristol, and I thought It would be beneficial to reach out and discuss another programme that may be of interest to your young people.
During the academic year I run a course called HITZ, this programme is a yearlong opportunity and works with 16-18 year olds (or 19-24 year olds who have an EHCP) who are at risk of being NEET. HITZ is ran through Prem Rugby and SCL (education provider) to offer young people the opportunity to gain a qualification as well as life skills such as confidence, aspirations and self-belief.
We offer provision for young people to participate in either BTEC Sports Course or Employability course, with the opportunity for the learners to also to complete their GCSE Maths and English or Functional Skills. Alongside this we also offer the opportunity for Enrichment sessions which include anything from sports (not just rugby!), cooking and work experience and so much more!
I have included some information below, and attached a flyer for you, if you have any young people you think would be interested please feel free to email me and I’d be happy to sign them up! We have some funding available to support with travel, subject to financial situation of the young people, if this is an issue.
WE ARE RECRUITING!! Places are still available for 16-18 – or 19-24-year olds with an EHCP (Educational Health Care Plan) who are not in education, employment or training.
A bit about Bath Rugby HITZ, an award-winning alternative education that provides an informal structure for students where the current academic structure doesn’t suit. Our specialist coaches capitalise on the rugby values and sport’s ability to remove barriers, build trust and increase confidence to set students on the path to success.
HITZ provides young people with qualifications and enrichment opportunities to support them to get back on track and develop the life skills needed. Our classrooms are very different and allow us to teach in a learner centred way, the learners participate in a wide variety of sports (not just rugby!), visit local areas and gain qualifications in Sports and Employability.
During enrichment opportunities we use a range of experiences to support the young people to develop confidence, self-esteem, healthy living and development for the next step. To support with the development of these life skills we use sports, music, food, animals, visits from local businesses and community engagement. Lots of opportunities for work experience throughout the year.
This year we are running two courses delivered through our educational partners SCL. In January we will be opening our enrolment for young people onto one of the following three courses:
BTCE Level 1 Sport and Active Leisure
Level 2 Employability
GCSE or Functional Skills*
*depending on the qualification needed
If you have any current young people who are interested in enrolling in one of our courses, please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
