Some young people face difficulties that may cause them to lose focus and possibly start to disengage from school. Early Engagement provides an opportunity for schools to identify small groups of young people who are at risk of becoming ‘At Risk”. This programme is based around a project called ‘About Me’ which looks at barriers, issues, motivation, and action. Students will have a 1-2-1 to gage an understanding of barriers. MD Creatives has direct links to many employers including leisure and tourism, banks, charitable organisations, performers, and entrepreneurs. Each week students will choose which industry they want to invite in for a Q&A. This will give students an opportunity to plan, negotiate, prepare interview questions as well as work as a team. Students will have ownership by deciding the path of the project, setting goals and vision boards, meeting directly with employers, increasing motivation and confidence.
