Our curriculum

The youth services curriculum is based on six main themes: being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution, economic well being and active citizenship.

Programmes of work are negotiated with young people and developed around their needs and interests. Young people also have the opportunity to gain local or nationally accredited awards for their achievements.
