At Bold Leap, we know that education is the key to the future for young people.
The government has raised the participation in education age so that all young people are now required to continue in education or training until their 18th birthday. Young people can choose how to participate. This can be through full-time education, an apprenticeship or traineeship, or by combining full-time employment with part-time education or training.
At Bold Leap, we make it our priority for all the young people to be engaged with an education or training program. Equally, we direct young people to the financial support that is available through the 16-19 Bursary Fund and to the local authority’s young people’s services, who can advise about the options available.
Encouraging Education for all
Bold Leap is committed to helping young people access an education program they are passionate about. Support may include helping the young person to use public transport confidently and safely or supporting the young person to use technology to connect with online learning, and so on. In addition, staff support the young person to access resources around career planning, including facilitating conversations with relevant professionals.
Support to Increase Employability and Launch a Fulfilling Career
Education and training are a pathway to stable employment. We help young people to improve their employability with confidence building, CV writing guidance, and interview workshops.
