Back on Track
A unique personal development course taught through creative techniques designed specifically for young people at risk of exclusion or offending.
Back on Track is a unique arts intervention designed to support young people from the most disadvantaged circumstances who, through anti-social or challenging behaviour, find themselves on the brink of exclusion from school or in contact with the youth justice system.
Back on Track gives young people the opportunity to develop their creativity in the informal learning environment of an arts venue and give themselves quality time and space to address their individual triggers and barriers. The project focuses on social and emotional aspects of learning and aims to give young people effective lifelong tools such as consequential thinking and empathy. Young people use new found skills to maximise their strengths and better understand their patterns of behaviour.
The course aims to
- Equip young people with effective social and creative tools
- Develop young people’s emotional literacy
- Help young people build confidence and understand their unique value
- Develop awareness of themselves within a wider social contact
- Foster independent learning
- Reduce the number of exclusions and reoffending rates
Back on Track and The Accredited Drama Course are supported by Lambeth Children and Young People’s Service, KPMG Foundation and the Equitable Charitable Trust.
