“We are proud to help fund the great work being undertaken by DVPDC through the acquisition of bikes and laptops for use by the young people attending the centre.”

All of the young people who attend the centre have found it difficult to fit into to mainstream education so the learning program at Dearne Valley PDC has been tailored to meet their specific needs. The centre aims to create a positive pathway back into mainstream education or college. Providing an alternative curriculum, that will re engage the most challenging learners.

It is aimed at young people from across the area who have become disengaged from mainstream schools and colleges. DVPDC currently has more than 60 young people on its books. It offers educational programmes in subjects such as English, maths and art, along with projects focusing on health and fitness.

Youngsters are encouraged to reach their full potential by gaining an, ‘NCFE’ qualification at the end of the course.
