Description

Course Objective

To enable participants to understand some of the key factors that contributes towards fear amongst young people.

Introduction

Children in England are among the unhappiest in the world.

Every single day young people face all manner of difficult challenges which continue as they grow up and enter the world of adulthood and responsibility. There are many young people who want to make a go of their lives but are blocked at many turns and so give up. Blocked by an education system that narrows the definition of achievement because it is built around targets and testing, and staffed by creatively compromised and disempowered teachers. Young people are filled with fear with as to what the future may hold. Could you imagine openly admitting that you don’t know what you want or the direction you want to go in? It’s daunting even for us as professionals. So put yourself in the shoes of a young person forced to make decisions that determined their future with no real understanding of what lies ahead. The majority of young people struggle with this and cover up their fear of the unknown with bravado and bad behaviour, with a huge proportion having to be referred to alternative learner provision.
