Education providers

Groundwork believes in giving everyone the opportunity to learn new skills and improve their prospects regardless of their starting point.

Our projects improve people’s prospects. From curriculum-led activities in primary schools, to post-16 courses and informal adult learning sessions, we provide quality and innovative learning experiences that increase people’s skills and confidence.

5-11 year olds

We excel at providing exciting and creative environmental activities to bring the curriculum to life both inside and outside the classroom. Pupils benefit from engaging with new learning experiences and gain a better understanding of the environment and their local community.

Some of the activities deliver in schools across North, East & West Yorkshire include:

11-16 year olds

Our alternative curriculum for secondary schools has helped many disengaged young people change from a path of negativity to one of hope. Working primarily outdoors and often away from the school setting, group activities such as boat building and basic woodland management have motivated participants and encouraged them to take ownership of their own learning, increasing their team working skills and confidence, often beyond recognition when they reintegrate into mainstream school life.

Post-16 education

Our team of experienced in-house tutors deliver accredited post-16 programmes on behalf of local authorities aimed at young people not in education, employment or training (NEET), providing them with the support and opportunities to find their own path to a successful future. We also deliver mainstream accredited courses for further education providers such as the Maltings College in Halifax.

Adult learning

Our adult learning programmes, such as Men in Sheds and Green for Go, cater for those wanting to learn new skills in an informal setting, or simply join new social circles.
