    Vocational Qualifications

    ABC Care are an ASDAN approved Centre. This means we are able to provide our young people with Vocational Qualifications. We are able to tailor the curriculum around their personal learning styles.

    Through guidance & support we are able to give our young people Vocational Qualifications which hold the same merit as GCSE's and even count towards A Levels.

Our Education

less than 14% of young people in care will achieve 5 good GCSE's.
Almost 1 in 3 care leavers have no GCSE's or Vocational Qualifications.

We work tirelessly to improve the lives of our young people.

Prospect House is registered as an Independent School (888/6058).

Our school Headteacher is Miss Eve Elliott.
Our proprietor is Chris Gerard Kennedy.

We are passionate about finding our young people the most suitable form of education, whether this is through local schools, colleges, PRU's, work experience, vocational qualifications or our own Virtual Education Package.

We find a lot of the young people we care for feel they have been let down in some way by mainstream education. This can set them behind and make them loose faith in the system. Young people in care are at a higher risk of being bullied due to their home life. This reinforces their belief that school is a negative environment.

We also know the majority of young people we care for are extremely computer literate. Young people relate with technology and the Internet. We believe that we must be innovative and fresh in order to enable our young people to engage in education.

We promote learning without boundaries through both virtual education & bespoke teaching, on an individual basis.

Our young people are provided with a Laptop, a microphone and a headset to use during education. A trusted staff member will sit with the young person at all times to provide additional support. Once the young person is online they will 'login' to a virtual classroom which will have upto 10 other students from around the country. A teacher will facilitate the lessons and use their own microphone to talk to the students. The teacher controls the laptops and has an interactive whiteboard as a teaching aid. The teacher can talk to the pupils privately or as a group. The teacher can also set work onto each pupils laptop and mark it as they go along. ABC Care fit educational activities around the timetable the students have.

Unlike a regular classroom, the pupils are placed into groups of the same 'learning ability' rather than their age. Pupils do not feel embarrassed to ask questions as they can get the attention of the teacher privately. If a pupil does not wish to use a microphone they can use the keyboard instead.

We have found this to be an incredibly successful way of offering education to our young people and we are proud of our young peoples achievements.
