A young person's perspective

Jack has been excluded from mainstream education for a number of years, and only attends school on a reduced timetable.

He took part in his first VIY project at Coventry Saracens FC in September 2023, and two further projects supported by his community support teams through Coventry Police, gaining three Entry Level 3 City & Guilds accreditations. His only three qualifications that year.

Since the very end of the first project, he’s spending his midweek days away from school gaining paid work decorating with a family member – as his skill, determination and motivation to learn had been reignited during the VIY experience away from the classroom.

Definitely #SomethingConstructive as we’d say.
