The Learning Club
Raising the confidence levels and academic standards of children aged 7 - 16 in one of Wales' more disadvantaged areas, i.e. Cardiff docks, to enable them to move on to higher education if they so choose .
March 2017 - February 2018
Charity information: Ace Cardiff Limited
Academic underachievement in children from a particularly disadvantaged area with a predominantly minority ethnic population resulting in loss of confidence to continue to higher education and raise career aspirations.
We solve the problem by offering a series of targeted learning sessions as follows: GCSE support for young people taking the exams in the current year; pre-prepared learning sessions in the core subjects (English, Science & Mathematics) for Years 3 - 9; Literacy & Numeracy catch-up for children with issues in Years 3/4 referred to us by local primary schools. We also run ESOL classes for the parents of the children that attend The Learning Club.
To improve the life opportunities for young people in a disadvantaged area of Wales.
