Youthreach Programme

The Youthreach Programme gives young people between the ages of 15 and 20, who left school early, an opportunity to get recognised qualifications and training.

Youthreach offers a flexible and dynamic programme of integrated general education, vocational training and work experience. Learners set personal and educational goals that increase their self-esteem, skill and knowledge base and employability. Essential course elements include Personal and Social Development, Vocational Skills and Communications Skills.
The Youthreach process involves

  • personal development and exploration
  • identification of needs, interests and capacities
  • setting learning goals
  • sampling general vocational skills
  • development of specific aptitudes
  • work experience
  • literacy and numeracy development
