Additional Information

Pathways is a Belfast-based alternative education programme for young people, aged 14-16, at risk of being excluded from mainstream education and who may also be at risk of offending, or entering into care or custody.

Pathways educates participants in core subjects and prepares them for the next steps in their lives, such as entering the workplace or going back into the education system.

The Education Authority-funded project typically works with ten young people in each of its three sites across the city (Shankill, Nelson Street and East Belfast).

The programme offers English, Maths and ICT up to GCSE level, while some participants have taken their education even further to sixth form.

Aside from the conventional subjects, the programme also emphasises personal and social skills through a well-being programme.
