The Education Process

The Student Educational Journey

For many young people whose lives are at a crossroads, the idea of studying subjects for an education they might not even use, feels redundant. At Pioneer we’re committed to providing care alongside education to employment through an activity-based programme combining academic, vocational studies, activities and life skills. We strive to ensure that the young people who pass through our doors are prepared and ready for the working world – and beyond.

The Pioneer education cycle includes mentoring and supporting our students throughout their student journey, constantly re-evaluating and addressing what guidance needs to be implemented in order for our students to achieve their full potential and updating each student’s ‘MY’ Plan.

Curriculum

The Pioneer curriculum is designed to educate young people in subjects which will enable a young person to develop the necessary personal and occupational / vocational skills to hold down a real job.

The Education and Life Support Programme has 5 stages and is designed to be dynamic, fluid, supporting and enabling. This strategy helps our students achieve their goals leading to positive outcomes and better opportunities when they embark on independent living.

We want our students to:

Succeed in education

Knowledge and learning can equip young people for life, regardless of the subject. We’re focused on ensuring our students succeed.

Be happy and healthy

The most important achievement for our students is to be happy and healthy. We equip them with the tools they need to become this.

Build good relationships

Learning the skills to build healthy and strong relationships help our students to grow as individuals and become well-rounded adults.

Have a safe place to stay

Have a safe place to stay - Feeling safe and secure is crucial for many of the young people that walk through our doors. The stability & structure of TEC Life enables them to feel this.
