MOTIVATING DISENGAGED STUDENTS, SUPPORTING THEM TO BECOME HIGH-ACHIEVERS

Since Covid-19, a record number of students are reportedly disengaged from school, for one reason or another… that’s where we come in!

AA Educates bridges the gap between what students learn in the classroom and the skills they need to excel beyond the school gates.

Our 'Shaping Pathways' programme inspires the transformational journeys of disengaged students; aged 11-18, through a blend of soft skill mentorship, career experiences and tuition.

“It has been a real privilege to cultivate this partnership and to welcome students to Bede's, to share with them the Bede's ethos and philosophy. Furthermore, having our colleagues volunteer to tutor and mentor has further enhanced the partnership. There is no doubt that there are numerous mutual benefits when schools work together, the diversity of experience is fundamental to our work with AA Educates and the mutual respect between our students is key to that success. It is very encouraging to be a part of this flourishing partnership which has at its heart the development of the students.”

“Our students hugely benefited from being on the AA Educates programme and accessed real-life experiences. We now have students who would like to pursue careers in STEM, after attending a practical day of STEM, through AA Educates.”

“I believe the programme acts as a support system for schools and parents by bridging the gap between who the students are and who they can become.”

JOIN OUR PROGRAMME

Our acclaimed programme extends over an academic year, dedicated to fostering the mindsets of students who feel disconnected from traditional education. With the guidance of our Mindset Mentors, we employ our A.B.C (Ambition, Belief and Confidence) approach, empowering students to confront real-world challenges facilitated through partnerships with various industries.

This engagement encompasses tasks such as data collection and analysis, market research, public speaking and collaborative teamwork.

Complementing this, bi-weekly tuition sessions in Maths, English and Science are integrated to boost academic growth and aptitude.

Our on-boarding process is simple, schools and businesses can start the programme within two weeks of student selection.
