Achievement Coaching is an established and well-recognised service provided by Groundwork Greater Manchester where young people aged 11-17 are provided with weekly 1-2-1 sessions by experienced youth workers.

Typically coaching is undertaken in a school or youth club environment, however due to Covid-19 the service has been adapted, providing support online or over the phone.

During coaching sessions youth workers will:

  • Help young people to become stronger and more resilient
  • Equip and enable them to achieve their full potential
  • Give them a voice
  • And improve their employability
