Fourteen-a (14a), provides education as the foundation tool to improve the lives of young people – particularly young women. We teach life skills using beauty industry techniques, that help create sustainable employment opportunities, and stronger more resilient people and communities, in some of the most deprived communities across the UK.
Traditional education isn't for everybody. Fourteen-a is for the day-dreamers, the believers who just want to make something beautiful. We encourage, enable and inspire people, bringing out the best in them, and in turn, their communities. We provide people faced with a variety of barriers an ability to step forward, grow, and belong.
Our philosophy, quite simply is: education is beauty.
Fourteen-a (14a) aims to:
- To promote social inclusion of people unable to afford the cost of further education and those who are faced with additional barriers to employment.
