Supporting Young People with Education outside of Mainstream School

At Moonrise 24hr we understand the importance of education in a young person’s life. It is the ability to empower young people to succeed, participate in culture, and be prepared for adult life. Children with disabilities, mental health issues and those in care should not be excluded from this.

Here at Moonrise, through alternative provision, defined as education outside of school, that is not led by school staff, we can equip young people with knowledge and skills that are lifelong.

By working closely with the Local Authorities and Alternative Provision Providers, Moonrise helps the young people that we support to access education across a range of areas that is suited to their personal needs and abilities.

Alternative Provision can be varied, including completing practical courses such as in motor mechanics or hairdressing, right through to work placements in shops and other businesses to experiences in music studios and on farms. By supporting our young people to access the provision we are empowering them to learn new skills.

For one of our young people their Alternative Provision consists of spending time on a farm three afternoons a week where they carry out activities including vehicle maintenance, animal care and woodwork.

By attending regularly, it gives our Young People a routine that they can work through, equipping them with other skills including time management and varied social interactions, that they can utilise as they grow.

It also allows the Young Person to have a focus and work towards something they are proud of, whether it is completing a course or building a bird house!

Other young people have accessed activities such as walking, caving, visits to museums, day trips to other cities such as Edinburgh.

Watching the positive effect that Alternative Provision can have on Young People is one of the most fulfilling parts of our role in supporting Young People as it allows us to see the positive impact it can have on them and their development.

Moonrise offers bespoke, person-centred care to children and young people, for more information check out our Childrens Service page or send us an enquiry to discuss any needs you may have.
