Since 2005 YMCA DownsLink Group has been delivering a range of Alternative Educational programmes to young people across Sussex and Surrey.
Our accredited courses cover a vast range of topics from Childcare and Horticulture to Barista Training and Bush Craft. They are delivered in a number of locations across the counties both on a 1-1 basis and in groups.
We recognise the significance for our students of the five outcomes set out in the Government Green Paper Every Child Matters 2003 and work toward ensuring they are safe, healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and enjoying economic well-being.
Placements can be offered to:
- Young people aged 14-18 within our vocational and alternative education programme
- Young people aged 12-18 who are in need of residential and education packages
