Barriers to Learning Workshop


Cohorts of young people are NEET Рnot in education, employment or training Рand are struggling to access learning opportunities so they can achieve their full potential. Many are now leaving educational institutions and finding themselves unemployed without recognised qualifications and without a route back into training or further education.  There are many reasons for this phenomenon, including financial, emotional and physical barriers. These barriers to learning are preventing young people achieving within education and training and this is a serious issue.

The 2engage Barriers to learning workshop is in a constant state of flux, aimed at young people of all ages to explore what is stopping so many young people reaching their full potential. We want young people to be equipped with improved confidence and self-esteem and a new attitude towards education and training. The knowledge and skills in this workshop will motivate them further and provoke them to re-engage with education and training.
