Beyond the School Gates
Has your child been excluded from school?
Are they aged between 13 – 19?
You and your child are invited to come to a focus group to share your experiences so we can support you
We aim to help you and your young person develop skills to access resources that meet your young
person’s academic, employment, training, social and emotional needs.
Dr Simon Edwards (University of Portsmouth), a youth worker and teacher currently working with excluded students and Dr Yusef Bakkali (University of Sussex), specialist in London street culture, will support and train older peer mentors who were excluded from school themselves, to co-support young people and their parents and carers.
Focus groups are facilitated by Dr Simon Edwards, peer mentors and parents from WSPCF.
