National Initiative of Creative Education, in alliance with Hull City Council and Rise Academy, have been commissioned to deliver a full time curriculum for year 11 students who have entered into the city at the later stages of KS4. The Learning Sanctuary programme supports up to 25 non English speaking learners from 10 different nationalities.
Our provision helps newly arrived young people in the transition process from KS4 into further education. Our programme consists of Functional Skills: English, Maths; BTEC Vocational Qualifications Art and Design, Creative Media, Life Skills: cooking and sport classes, as well as BTEC Self-Assessment and Career Progression.
We believe our unique, approachable and creative methods in education raise students’ motivation, self-esteem and lead them to achieve their potential.
All learners have the opportunity to complete up to 8 qualifications tailored to their personal interest and level; each learner is guaranteed a progression route in to post 16 education following the completion of the course.
In addition to the curriculum the programme also offers a robust family outreach service which supports whole family engagement considering; social, cultural, immigration, employment, and housing advice and guidance.
Migrant children often come to England with great subject knowledge, talents and great potential, which unfortunately is curbed by the low level of English. Our support helps to fill in the language gap and allow them to thrive and achieve.
