Young people today are living and learning in an increasingly challenging world, and post pandemic it is currently unknown what further challenges and complexities lay ahead of them.
Over the last 30 years, Llamau has established a strong reputation for delivering a high quality, flexible and nurturing education programme aimed at young people age 16-24.
The young people Llamau support are often considered to be the furthest away from the labour market. However, at Llamau, we never give up on a person. We believe in the young people we support and we understand the challenges they face, meaning we are capable of reaching them and providing the right support.
All of our programmes are young person centred. Our curriculum is designed to recognise that no one individual learns in the same way and therefore it’s important that our approach is never generic.
Each programme focuses on the core areas of a young person’s life. We support them to progress through each step of the learning programme, developing and enhancing their skills and capabilities. Our tutors are experts in their field and are able to identify the needs, the barriers and the potential young people have.
This ensures young people are working through the right programme at the right time, and at their own pace.
Step into Involvement centres around helping the people we support to amplify their voices, with a view to influencing areas such as policy change, their immediate environment and their own lives.
Step into Engagement looks to offer opportunities, which develop confidence, improve wellbeing, raise self-efficacy and
develops transferable skills.
Step into Employment offers an intensive accredited Future Employability Programme for those that are almost ready and able to enter the labour market.
Step into Independent Living aims to equip young people with the knowledge, confidence and skills they need to be able to cope with living alone, in many cases for the first time.
A core aim of this accredited programme is for young people to develop self-belief, feel proud of what they have achieved and confident that they can continue to overcome their identified barriers to education, employment and training.
Step into Education sees the delivery of our Essential Skills Wales programmes, awards in PSE and WRE and interactive
