BRIDGE Project
‘Believe, Relate, Improve, Dedication, Goals, Empower’

This Bridge Project targets year 9, 10 & 11 students through an individualised programme to meet their needs holistically. The Bridge Project is a breakthrough programme that intervenes early to ensure that young people with disabilities/behavioural and additional needs make a successful transition from school to work, further education or training; where young people are at risk of not making a successful transition from school to further education, training or employment.

We provide young people with information, support and high quality one-to-one coaching, group interventions and valued post-16 career opportunities and ultimately a successful and sustainable pathway into employment and adulthood. Young people will be supported through the project for a minimum of 6 weeks, between ages 14-18 years old. Due to disabilities, this does not exclude those young people eligible, which are still in full time education up to the age of 25 years old.

The Bridge Project will include; direct work with vulnerable and challenging young people, ideally in school environments, alternative provisions or at our local office base near the Nottingham City Centre.

Activities include:
1:1 coaching, group workshops, SEAL, managing money, basic life skills, intensive self-esteem workshops with a qualified counsellor, application skills/interview skills.

The outcomes are:
Personal; improvements to emotional and mental wellbeing
Social; peer interaction, improved communication skills, team work skills
Economical; Basic life skills, job opportunities, entry into further education or training and promotion of independence
