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.

However, face to face coaching can be delivered where young people are high risk.

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
