Groundwork engage with schools to deliver innovative environmental education programmes, transform school grounds and re-engage disaffected young people into education. Our specialist education practitioners deliver bespoke sessions at our beautiful education centre set in 13 hectares at West Boldon Lodge or we will come to you.
Sessions are linked to the national curriculum and demonstrate how individual actions can make a difference to the local and global environment. Teaching young people about their impact on the planet is the first step to changing that behaviour
for the better.
We can offer a range of alternative education placements for young people across South Tyneside and Newcastle. We are an approved supplier for South Tyneside Council and Newcastle City Council. Our alternative education programme is flexible to meet need and is available in a wider range of subjects including customer service, environmental services, retail, construction and employability. Placements can be short term and long term, please contact the Youth, Employment & Skills Manager for more information.
