These are programmes desgned mainly around year 8 or 9 students that may need help to fully engage in school life, they may be at risk of exclusion or may just be struggling to cope.
Either way carefully planned group work and a range of
engaging outdoor learning activities will be delivered with a focus on how we learn, how we interact and how we can take responsibility for our actions.
We start with I: Where I am, what I bring, who I am. We move
towards you: an understanding of what you need and how I can support and encourage you. We end up together with a collective we: We can do this, we can support each other, we are a team.
Responsibility is defining: our re-engagement programmes find
ways to give young people responsibility for their actions and their learning.
These programmes are run by us at Black Wolf, with support from
school staff. They are embedded within day to day school life and so the quality and regularity of communication between school and Black Wolf is one of the critical success factors.
One of our successful past programmes has been to build up a
group to the stage where we have been able to take them on a canoe and camping trip to Sweden where their ability to take responsibility for themselves, as well as work in a team is paramount and has
really brought out the best in students.
